Lizard pose (Utthan Pristhasana) opens the hips, hamstrings, and groin while strengthening the thighs and core. It opens the chest, releasing the shoulders and neck, and improves flexibility in the hip flexors.
This is a challenging posture, and propping the forearms on blocks is beneficial for students with slightly lower hip flexibility.
