February Pose of the Month

February is here! And, since it’s a special month of love & a leap year, we’re dedicating the month to a favorite heart-opener: Anjaneyasana!

  • From runner’s lunge, untuck your back toes and ground down onto your knee
  • Inhale to lift your arms up overhead, rotating your pinky fingers in toward each other
  • Adjust your low lunge so that your front bent knee is stacked directly over your ankle
  • Draw your tailbone down toward the ground as your soften the weight of your body int your hips for a nice stretch along the front thigh and groin
  • Option to pin your shoulder blades together and lead with your gaze and fingertips for a deeper heart-opening backbend

Benefits of Anjaneyasana:

  • Stretches hamstrings, psoas, groin, and hips
  • Strengthens quads and glutes
  • Can relieve sciatica pain or discomfort
  • Improves balance, concentration, and core awareness
  • Ignites heart chakra and a lovely sensation in the chest and abdomen

Invigorate your body and mind with a lunge and a bend, and as your heart expands, send all of your love to someone who needs it most!
