Be certain of your physical abilities and limitations before attempting any yoga pose, and seek clearance from your physician if you are uncertain. Always respect your body and know your limits.

Yoga Hanumasana Pose

Yoga Monkey Pose

Monkey pose is an advanced pose for many and should be approached with caution. Attempting this pose should only be done after several leg and hip stretches, so muscles are prepared. Examples could include: Uttanasana (forward bend), Adho Mukha Svanasana (downward facing dog pose), Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (pigeon), Paschimottanasana (seated forward bend), Bhekasana (frog pose), and other poses that stretch the hamstring and quadricep muscles.

Inhale, Begin standing on knees.

Exhale, Step one foot forward, place hands on floor, and slide other leg back.

Inhale, bringing awareness to relaxed state of stretched muscles, as forward foot extends further.

Exhale, and if appropriate relaxing further into pose, allowing both legs to extend closer to straight.

Inhale, again bringing awareness to muscle tension.

Exhale, and if appropriate relaxing further into pose, allowing both legs to extend closer to straight or fully extended.

Inhale, bringing awareness to alignment of legs. Often legs will rotate inward or outward to reduce tension.

Exhale, and if needed, bring legs into alignment with back edge of forward leg resting on floor, and front edge of back leg resting on floor.

Inhale, sitting tall with crown of head extended toward ceiling, and if appropriate, lifting hands off floor and extending arms upward.

Exhale, pressing outward with both heels into full expression of Hanumasana (Monkey Pose).

- Hold pose 3 to 5 breaths or as long as comfortable.
