Sanskrit Name: Anjaneyasana
English Translation: Crescent Moon Pose
Also Called: Reverse Warrior, Crescent Lunge Pose
- Begin in Downward Facing Dog. Step your right foot forward between your hands, coming into Warrior 1. Then open hips, arms, and chest into Warrior 2.
- Gently arch back and rest your left hand on the back of your left leg. Raise your right arm overhead, feeling the stretch through the right side of the body. Make sure you continue to lower your hips and press your front knee forward so it's directly over your right ankle.
- Remain here for five breaths. Lift your torso up, place your hands on the floor, and move back into Down Dog. Step your left foot forward and do this pose on the left side.
