Anjaneyasana - Low Lunge/Cresent Lunge

This                                                                                 posture is also known as “crescent moon”. On a subtle level develops                                                                                   masculine energy in the form of mental power such as determination,                                                                                   willpower, confidence, courage and power...........Hanuman didn’t know                                                                                he had the strength to take the “greatest leap ever taken” until he did it.                                                                              The take home message here is to believe you have the strength inside                                                                                 as you step into this pose."
