31 Days of Yoga – Crescent Moon (Anjaneyasana)

Welcome to day 25 where we will learn crescent moon pose. This pose is a deep stretch that is very good to work your quads and hip flexors.

To perform: Get into a low lunge. Drop your back knee to the mat. Place a pillow under that knee if you need extra cushion. Bring your front knee directly over your right ankle. Place your hands on that knee. Inhale as you raise your arms over your head along side your ears. Deepen the lunge as you feel comfortable. Hold 30 seconds. Repeat on other side.

Benefits of Crescent Moon Pose:

  • Opens chest
  • Strengthens ankles & legs
  • Relieves back pain
  • Reduces anxiety & depression
  • Aids in digestion
  • Improves balance
