Chair Squat, variation


Place the front legs of a chair along the long edge of your mat. Sit on the front edge of the seat. Separate your knees so your thighs (and feet) make a 90-degree angle with each other. Elongate your torso, and then release forward between your legs. Place your forehead on stacked blocks so that the pose feels easy. Bring your fingers to the floor, and use your elbows to lift up the skin of your inner knees and lightly press them back. This pose can quiet your nervous system and teach you how to move the flow of prana and breath into the back body. Stay for 3–5 minutes.
