Benefits: Stretches the groins. Strengthens the legs and arms.
From a standing forward fold, bend your knees and as you inhale, step one foot back towards the back edge of your mat, pressing firmly into the front foot as you keep your front knee bent. Make sure you’re extending your back leg as straight as possible while remaining on the ball on your back foot. You can also choose to lower your back knee to the ground if that feels better on your body. From here, you can choose to keep both hands on the ground, framing your front foot or extend both hands up overheard, reaching through the fingertips towards the sky.
