High Lunge

Published by

High Lunge

The High Lunge is a great pose to stretch many of the muscles of the upper thighs and groin. We spend a lot of time in chairs, and the High Lunge is a great pose to counter tightness. At the same time your right side is stretching, your left quad is strengthening. Multitasking at its best!

  • Step 1 Start standing in the Mountain pose.
  • Step 2 Exhale as you fold forward into the Chair pose. Bend your knees if you need to so that your hands touch the floor.
  • Step 3 Step your left foot far enough back so that your front knee is directly over your ankle.
  • Step 4 Gently rest on your fingertips, gaze forward, and open your chest.
  • Step 5 Press your back thigh toward the ceiling, and your heel toward the back wall.
  • Step 6 Step forward into the Chair pose and then into the Mountain pose.

Things to think about

• If it is hard to lift your back knee, keep it on the floor at first.


If your upper back is rounded, place your hands on blocks to give more room to open your chest.
