High Lunge Pose or Ashta Chandrasana in Sanskrit (ahh-SHTAH chahn-DRAH-suh-nuh) is the perfect pose to come into after a long day of sitting all day. It creates space in your hip flexors and invigorates your spine. This standing balancing pose tones your calves, hamstrings, quadriceps, and glutes.
Open your heart in this slight backbend.
