How To Chair Pose:

  1. Starting in Mountain Pose, raise your  arms upward towards your ears. Keeping your arms perpendicular to each other, turn your plams facing inward.
  2. Bend your knees (going into a squat like position), keeping your thighs as parallel to the floor as possible.  Your torso may extend forward a little over your thighs so make sure to keep your knees directly over your feet.
  3. Keep your lower back long with your tailbone stretching down toward the floor.
  4. Firm your shoulder blades into your back. Look towards your fingertips.
  5. Exhale back into Mountain Pose.

  • Squeeze a yoga block, small fitness ball or even a rolled towel between your knees to increase your thigh strength.
  • Deepen the pose by placing your palms in your thigh creases and push your thighs down towards your heels while lifting your pelvis upwards.
