A more challenging version of the traditional lunge:
Commence from a standing position with the front foot on the cushion and the ball of the back foot on the floor with both knees slightly flexed sharing the weight equally across the feet, and the arms long by the sides or out to the side.
Exhale; maintain an upright and neutral torso, flexing both of the knees, and then lowering the back knee towards the floor.
Inhale; return to start position.
Repeat for five to eight reps on each leg.
