Lizard Pose / Utthan Pristhasana
From runner's lunge, drop the back knee to the floor as far back as your hips comfortably allow and sink your hips down toward the mat. Make sure your front knee never goes past your ankle and walk your toes forward if you notice your knee bending too much.
Take the front leg arm and move it to the inside of your thigh on the mat. Lower to both forearms if possible without hunching your lower back. Just as in the previous folds, your torso should be trying to lengthen out as long as your front leg. Try to make your back as flat as the top of your front leg quad and hug your rib cage against your inner thigh.
For an added quad stretch, reach the front leg arm either through the hole under you or back over your hips to grab your lifted back leg foot and pull the heel toward ur butt.
