Our mission as a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Bali is to educate our students to help them understand their own practice in order to share it with others.
During this time of confinement, we would like to introduce a weekly posture to allow you to practice safely and efficiently in the comfort of your home.
Whether you want to become a yoga instructor, or simply want to improve your own practice, you will find these tips helpful to improve your knowledge and practice.
Anjaneyasana – Low lunge Pose
Anjaneyasana is in honor of Anjani the cloud woman, mother of Lord Hanuman.
The pose resembles a young, divine child (Anjaneya), reaching towards the sky and warmth of the Sun.
In this pose, let your inner child shine as you find the balance between grasping for something and raising your hands in wonder. Enjoy the feeling of being deeply grounded even as you rise.
- Start in Downward Facing Dog. On an exhale, step the right foot between the hands.
- Lower your left knee and top of the foot on the mat. Slide your left knee back as far as it feels comfortable.
- On the inhale slowly rise your hands overhead with the palms facing one another and gaze up in between the hands.
- As you exhale, draw your tailbone down as you lift the rib cage away from the hips.
- Hold this pose for up to 5 breaths. Use your inhales to lengthen the spine and exhales to deepen the stretch.
- Release the hands to the floor, step back to Downward-Facing Dog and repeat on the opposite side.
