This is the last yoga practice pose I will be posting for a while, giving you plenty of time to catch up with your postures and possibly improving!

 

Chair Pose

Begin in Tadasana, Mountain pose, taking several rounds of breath to settle into your body.

Keep the belly hugging into the spine.  Imagine pulling the belly in and up.  Inhale and lift the arms up.

Exhale to bend the knees, lower the tailbone towards the earth, and shift the weight of the body in the heels.  Make sure you can see your toes.  If the knees pass over the toes and block your vision, pull the hips back and down.

Relax the shoulders and breathe deeply as the back flattens and core remains engaged.  The gaze can be towards the sky or straight ahead.

Chair pose is a great way to strengthen the hips, thighs, and abdomen.  Take 5 to 10 full breaths and then rest in Tadasana.  Repeat as often as you would like!

 

Continue to practice these “basic” postures, and your life and practice will transform!
