Runners Lunge / Anjaneyasana
From your pyramid pose, bend your front knee as you reach your hands to both sides of the front foot and coming up onto the ball of the back foot.
Press your front knee into a 90 degree angle and make sure your knee never goes farther forward than your ankle. Extend your torso along the top of the front thigh and raise the back of your hamstring as high as you can while sinking the hips lower toward the ground.
For added difficulty, raise the arms and trunk of the body upright such as in Warrior 1. What's the main difference between Warrior 1 and high lunge? The back foot is completely balanced on just the balls of your back foot in lunge versus all four points of your foot in Warrior.
