Day 1 - Chair Pose — Utkatasana (OOT-kuh-TAHS-uh-nuh) — is a standing yoga posture that tones the entire body, particularly the thighs! Utkatasana is also sometimes referred to as “Awkward Chair Pose,” “Thunderbolt Pose,” or “Powerful Pose.” Its Sanskrit name comes from the words “utkata” (meaning “powerful” or “fierce”) and “asana” (meaning “pose”). It can be a fierce pose for your thighs and it gets your heart pumping quickly.

Tips for Ustrasana by YogaByCandace #yoga#ustrasana#howtodoyoga

“Camel pose is one of my favorite poses. It stretches the entire front body and shoulders, thighs, and hip flexors and is great for someone who sits all day because it helps to open up the chest and improve posture. Suitable for almost everyone (if you’re working with a back injury or neck issues, I’d steer clear of this pose), and beginners who aren’t able to reach their heels can use a block (or stack of books) on the outside of each foot. Hope this helps!”
