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.
