High Lunge

Whether you’re sitting at your desk all day or standing for hours every week, I promise this pose will serve you.

High lunge is one of those multi-purpose poses because it will open you up while challenging you to strengthen your foundation.

You will feel brand new.

Benefits of High Lunge

  • Reduces lower back pain
  • Lengthens tight hips
  • Promotes blood flow through entire body
  • Increases balance and stability
  • Inspires confidence
  • Stimulates root and heart chakra
  • Lengthens the spine
  • Improves posture

How to get into the pose:

  • Beginners: start kneeling on the ground, step one foot in front of you, keep the back knee on the ground
  • Intermediate: start from standing and take one foot a few feet in front of you, keep the back leg engaged
  • Advanced: start from standing, flow into warrior three and land into high lunge


  • Create a 90* angle with your front knee
  • Reach to the sky and squeeze your butt, this will elongate the hip flexor
  • Keep your shoulders down away from your ears
  • Engage your entire body from toes to finger tips
  • Do on both sides until you feel the burn in your thighs

Once you’ve done as many as you can, take a rest in child’s pose and connect to your breath. Find your way to corpse pose (lay down on your back) and meditate on gratitude.
