Sharing my practice to inspire and motivate more students to confidently deepen their yoga practice safely

Utkata Konasana ("Goddess Pose")​

  1. Begin in a wide-standing stance, with your feet slightly angled out at 45 degrees.

  2. (Inhale) Stretch your arms up above your head

  3. (Exhale) Bend your knees, lower your hips down so that your thighs are parallel to the ground, bring your palms to your heart in prayer pose

  4. Stay for about 4-5 breaths At this point, you can place your palms on your thighs nearer to your knees and lower your hips down even more. Lean forward slightly to maintain balance. If you feel comfortable, you can stretch your upper back by pushing your shoulders forward one at a time.

 

Notes:

  • "I am unable to maintain my balance." You can wider your stance a little, or place your palms on a wall in front of you.
