Anjaneyasana / Low Lunge
Technique / SUP Yoga
Lunges are great to try on a paddleboard as they are relatively easy to get into, but remain quite challenging for both body and mind. Here in this low lunge, the knee is down on the board providing a stable base. The front knee is bent at 90 degrees. The eye gaze is forward gazing at a fixed point of focus to help keep balance. When done on a paddleboard, lunges require more concentration and core strength to remain stable on the unsteady surface of the water. A great pose to stretch the leg muscles and release tension in the hips. Make sure to maintain a focus on your breathing; steady breath- steady pose.
