Chair Pose

NOTE: Before you start this, consult your doctor or an exercise professional about this pose. Don't try to do it alone.


Tip To Do -

1 - Stand in a Mountain Pose. Take a deep breath in and raise your arms upwards until your biceps are just in front of your ears. Keep your arms parallel and your palms facing in or clasp them together.
2 - Taking a deep breath out, flex your knees till your thighs are as parallel to the floor as you can manage. Your front torso will make about a right angle with the tops of your thighs as your knees extend outward over your feet and your trunk leans forward over them.
3 - Press the tops of your thigh bones down toward your heels while keeping your inner thighs parallel to one another.
4 - Push firmly with your back and shoulder blades. Keep your lower back long by pointing your tailbone inside, into your pubis, and down towards the floor. Hold this posture for five to ten breaths. To release the pose, come to the mountain pose.
