Beginner Yoga Challenge: Chair Pose

Performed by Marin Jayden

Benefits of the Utkasana: Stronger ankles, thighs, calves, and spine. It helps reduce flat feet and stimulates the heart and abdominal organs. Avoid chair pose if you have low blood pressure.

  • Start by standing up straight with your legs together;
  • Raise your arms high above your head and almost connect palms;
  • Bend your knees as much as you can while keeping your heels on the floor;
  • Arch your back slightly.

Modifications: To make this pose harder you can squeeze a block or thick book between your thighs.
