Straight Leg

© Barry Stone
Restraighten the back leg if you have dropped that knee to the floor. Slowly straighten the front leg as you forward bend over that leg. Try to keep the front foot flat on the floor and don't force the leg to come straight. Go back and forth between a bent and straight front leg several times. You can also use blocks under your hands if they don't easily reach the floor when you straighten the front leg.

Repeat on the Left Side

Step back to downward dog. Then step the left foot forward next to the left hand and take your lunges on that side. Come back to downward dog when you are finished with the left leg.
