Chair Poses Improve Yoga Techniques:-

If you’re new to yoga, here’s a way to modify the classic chair pose. Practice half-chair for a while before progressing to the more challenging full chair position. This gives you a chance to learn proper technique without developing bad habits.

Step 1 Stand with your feet together and with your hands by your sides. As you inhale, sweep your arms up and bend your knees. Sit back on your heels with your hips moving behind your heels. Grasp your forearms above your head. Drop your shoulders down and away from your ears and look forward. Make sure you keep your heels on the floor with your knees together and your abdominals pulled in. Take three to six slow full breaths. Come out of the pose by straightening your legs and lowering your arms.

Step 2 As you feel more competent and become comfortable doing the half chair, continue to squat deeper toward the floor. Straighten your arms overhead, pointing your fingertips toward the ceiling. Remember to relax your shoulders down. Sit as low as you can with your knees together and your heels on the floor. Hold for three to six full breaths.

Dog Pose (Yoga Exercise)

[amazon_link asins=’B01NATICOB,1631910108,B00PWWO9WG,B01MUF3ANR’ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’finmeacur-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’145373ee-63a0-11e7-bb4c-55a4976b3c52′]
Rejuvenate muscles with yoga‘s downward facing dog pose:

This classic yoga pose, downward facing dog, increases the blood supply to the brain and stretches the muscles in the legs, torso and arms. If the backs of your legs are tight, bend your knees so you can lift your hips and lengthen your spine.

 

Step 1: Lie face-down on a mat, placing your hands next to your chest with your fingers pointing forward. Bend your knees, raise your hips and come onto your hands and knees. Curl your toes under, press into your hands and raise your buttocks into the air, moving your thighs up and back. Continue to lift up with the front of your legs as you lower your heels to the ground. Hold for 30 seconds to one minute, breathing evenly. To release, return to all fours and sit back on your heels.
Step 2: For a variation on the standard pose, rest your head on a yoga block. It feels good — and helps calm and soothe your mind.
