Yoga Day Thirty-Three – Chair Pose

Maybe it was all the time I spent working with a trainer doing squats and lunges, but I like chair pose.  I mean, it’s not fun or easy, but utkatasana makes me feel strong and tough.

This is kind of where I am, so the goal for me is to get my arms back and my tush down.

Amazing arms

And here’s the muscle and ligament action

Utkatasana-_-Chair-pose

And then there are the variations . . .

The twisted pose is part of my regular practice but only recently does it not make me want to die.  Now I can barely breathe, but I manage.

Amazing!
