Side Lunge

6. Separate your feet a wide distance, 4 feet or more depending on the length your legs. Point the toes forward. Place your hands above the knees. While exhaling, bend your right knee, keeping the left leg straight. The torso should be in as upright a position as possible. Try not to lean forward. One method of practice is to hold on to a support as you go down and up to help keep the torso upright. Go down as low as you can without strain. Inhale while coming up and repeat on the other side. Repeat 3 times. The exercise will become easier with practice, but it is demanding and should not be rushed. The stretch is for the inner thigh (adductors) and the hips.
