- Begin in a seated position. Extend both legs out straight from the hip bones.

- Place the hands on the outside of the hips or bring them to prayer position in front of the heart.
- Remain here as long as you like breathing deeply 5-10 breaths.

We use dandasana as a prep pose, transition, or to check alignment. It helps to improve posture, while strengthening muscles in the back, legs, and core.
