Chair looks pretty easy, but it’s quite challenging. Chair demands strength and flexibility in addition to core stability.

Chair is quite rewarding though. If you commit to making Chair part of your daily practice – even if just a few breaths at a time – you’ll increase your endurance in just a matter of weeks.

Over time, Chair will strengthen your thighs, which helps to stabilize your knees, and stabilize your core. This is a great pose to improve your posture when you’re sitting in an actual chair.

  1. Start in Mountain Pose.
  2. Inhale and raise your arms up over your head.
  3. Exhale and bend your knees. Bring your thighs as close to parallel to the floor as possible. (This may not be possible for some months. Don’t force it.)
  4. Move your weight into your heels and center yourself.
  5. Pull your shoulder blades back, and pull them apart, taking care not to extend your rib cage forward.
  6. Hold.
  7. Inhale as you straighten your legs, lifting with your arms.
  8. Exhale back into Mountain Pose.
