Two Low Lunge, Crescent Yoga Pose to get you darted
Downward facing dog 1 Start with your hands and knees on the floor, wrists in line with your shoulders, knees directly below your hips and toes tucked under your ankles. With your fingers spread wide, press your palms into the floor.
Bring your body into the pose by straightening your legs and lifting your pelvis as you exhale. Keep your knees soft. You can walk the dog’ by lifting and lowering your heels to relax your legs further into the position.
Hold for 5-10 slow, focussed breaths.
When you’re ready to release, slowly relax into child’s pose (pictured above).

2 Stand with legs approximately one metre apart. Turn your left foot 90° to point away from your body, keeping your right foot in place.
With shoulders relaxed, extend your arms out to each side in line with your shoulders, palms facing down.
Bend your left knee 90°, keeping it in line with your ankle (don’t overshoot as this puts undue stress on the knee). Depending on your height, you may need to adjust the position of your other foot to correctly achieve the position.
Once in position, turn your head to gaze into the distance out over your left arm and hand.
