- Begin standing with feet hip bone distance apart and weight centered on all four corners of the feet. Sit down like you would in a chair.
- Maintain strong abs, engaging the transverse abdominus muscles by imagining you have a corset/weight lifting belt on, and you are cinching it tighter.
- Press your ribs back towards an invisible wall behind you.
- Roll your shoulders back and bring your hands to heart center in Anjali Mudra (Prayer Hands).
- Gaze forward. Breathe.
Some things to remember:
You can adjust how low you sit down to your capabilities, as long as you do not bend the knees greater than 90 degrees.
To make the pose more challenging, try coming up onto the balls of the feet or letting the weight come back into the heels and lifting the toes.
