YOGA POSE BREAKDOWN: Monkey Pose or Splits & Half-Splits

This is not the same splits you’ll find in dance or cheerleading!

Listen! I include common modifications and variations you’re probably already doing!

Even though in the full expression this pose is extremely advanced and possibly not attainable, ever. There are some great modifications and variations you’re probably already doing! Half-Split is very popular, I call it “Runner’s Stretch” an intense hamstring stretch.

The “full” variation with blocks can be a great hip flexor opener, and even splits up the wall feels good for most yoga practitioners.

The Sanskrit name for this pose, "Hanumanasana" (HAH-new-mahn-AHS-uh-nuh), is named after the Hindu monkey god, Hanuman. In an ancient story, Hanuman took one giant leap all the way from India to Sri Lanka, and then one more leap to return to India. Hanumanasana mimics his leap! By practicing the pose on each side, you become like Hanuman, soaring to a new country and returning home.

Enjoy & incorporate it into your personal practice!

This new series will breakdown some of the most popular yoga poses you will see in most yoga sequences. Learning to do the individual pose correctly as well as how to modify the pose for your body or create more challenges for those who are more advanced will make your yoga practice more fun allowing you to experience the true benefits of yoga and most importantly prevent injury at the same time. Listen to the yoga pose breakdown and follow along. Check out my website where you can find more information about the pose.
