Power Pose: Chair

Chair pose is a power pose for the lower body!

Working all the major muscle groups of the lower body – glutes, quads, hamstrings, adductors, hip flexors and calves, this pose will help you to build strength and stability.

(1)  Start with feet hip width apart (or slightly wider if more comfortable), palms together in front of the chest.
(2)  Engage your abdominals and with weight through the heels, guide hips back into a sitting position.
(3)  Keep knees safe by ensuring they don’t move beyond the toes.
(4)  Hands can stay infront of the chest, or if comfortable extended high.

Hold for 6 breaths.
This can also be done as a dynamic movement, flowing from standing into the squat position.
