See the instructions below from for how to do the Lizard pose.

Here are some interesting facts about Lizards too.

  • The Komodo Dragon is the largest lizard in the world - it can grow up to 10-11ft.

  • The smallest lizard is the Marche Leon Least Gecko, weighing just 0.12g.

  • The Horned lizard can squirt blood from its eye sockets and can each up to 4ft away.

  • Some lizards can detach their tails if caught by predators.

  • There are three species of lizard in the UK – the Common Lizard, the Sand Lizard and the Slow-Worm (a type of legless lizard often mistaken for a snake). Of these three species, you are most likely to see Slow-Worms or common lizards in your garden.

  • Start in Downward-Facing Dog. Inhale.

  • Exhale as you step your right foot to the outside of your right hand. Make sure your foot comes all the way to the front of your mat so your toes are in line with your fingers. Your right knee should be bent at a 90-degree angle and stacked above the ankle. Your toes should point out about 45 degrees.

  • Inhale as you bring your elbows to the floor with your forearms flat on your mat. Spread your palms out on the floor (use a block underneath the forearms here if necessary).

  • Keep your head in a neutral, relaxed position.

  • Exhale and press into your left heel to keep your left leg active. This will help ensure your hips don't sag toward the floor.

  • Stay for 5 deep, full breaths.

  • When you're ready to release from the pose, exhale deeply and straighten your arms so your wrists are under your shoulders.

  • Inhale and step back to Downward Dog.

  • Stay in your starting pose for several breaths.

  • Repeat the steps starting with your left leg forward to ensure the pose is performed equally on both sides.
