"Pie in the sky" Yogini - Combining Muscles in Lunge Pose!

Take a moment here and think about the muscles that combine and activate when moving into lunge pose.

1. Position the body n lunge pose to begin stretching the iliopsoas.

2. Contract the front leg hamstrings, drawing the body deeper into the lunge, accentuating the iliopsoas.

3. Contract the back arm biceps to flex the back knee, further accentuating the iliopsoas stretch while stretching the quadriceps.

4. Contract the front arm triceps, straightening the arm and lifting the chest. This stretches the abdominal, tilts the pelvic backwards and completes the iliopsoas stretch.

Happy lunging!
