- Strengthens thighs
- Engages core, upper back, and arms
- Opens shoulders and chest
- Stretches thighs, hips, and groin
This pose is fairly straightforward. To begin, heel tow your feet about as wide as your mat. Exhale, bend the knees and shoulders. Engaging your core, squat down as low as you can. A full expression is around a 90 degree angle. Elbows should be in alignment with the shoulders. Hands extend upward, collar bones lift and spread as the shoulder blades draw near each other.
Please refrain from the posture if you are experiencing if you have any chronic pain in your knees, hips, or groin.
