Monkey Pose (Hanumanasana)

Monkey Pose, also called Hanumanasana, is an intense leg-stretching pose. Don't perform this pose if you have any serious injuries in your hamstring or groin area, or if you have muscle pain. Pregnant women should avoid this yoga. Before starting the yoga, ensure that you do a warm-up like some hip-opening exercises. The pose is to stretch your waist and legs and also open up your chest.
