Sure we're familiar with poses like Adho Mukha Svanasana (downward facing dog ;) but what about some of the others like Lizard Pose! Here we go:
Utthan Pristhasana (OOT-ahn preesth- AHS – anna) is what we commonly call Lizard Pose. Try saying it out loud for the vibration! The meaning of the sanskrit is different however:
Utthan: stretch out
Pristha: page of the book; back of the body
You may feel lizard-like doing this as the pose. It strengthens the groin and inner hamstrings while preparing the body for deeper hip openers. Stay steady in the breath and focus. Stay tuned for the next one!
