CHAIR POSE //
Some of you have asked for a Right/Wrong on Chair pose, so here it is!
Different styles of yoga call for different feet placement, but generally your feet should be parallel to each other. Ground into all four corners of each foot with toes pointing directly forward.
KEEP YOUR KNEES BEHIND TOES
When you start to lower yourself into this pose, imagine you’re actually sitting in a chair. This means you have to sit down backwards, pulling your knees behind the toes and keeping your weight in the heels. One way to make sure you’re doing this right is to look down and ask yourself if you can see all 10 toes. You should be able to! Also, try lifting all 10 toes off the floor. This helps you shift your weight back, into your heels.
NO ARCHING OF LOWER BACK
Learn to tuck your tailbone under in this pose (think Michael Jackson’s pelvic tilt, or the forward movement in twerking haha). As you tuck your tailbone, engage your abs and pull your navel toward your spine. This avoids compression in the lower back and lengthens your spine on all sides.
DO WHATEVER YOU NEED WITH YOUR ARMS
Traditionally, the arms are raised above the head and the palms are together in prayer position. But when it comes to arms, I really feel it’s up to you. For example if you have really tight shoulders and raising your arms up is too much, you can keep your hands at heart’s centre. Alternatively you can just raise your arms up without bringing your palms together. Yogi’s choice!
RELAX YOUR SHOULDERS
Whatever you’re doing with the arms, just remember to relax the shoulders. Shrug them down, away from your ears, pulling your arm bones firmly into the shoulder sockets.
