Low Variation of Chair Pose

Home » Uncategorized » Low Variation of Chair Pose

Low Chair PoseThis is a very low variation of Chair Pose, also known as Pistol Pose.  Its an intense hip opener, a balancing pose that facilitates inner calm & increases focus.  Hold pose for several breaths or as long as balance is available to you  on each leg/foot; repeat on the other side.  Start the pose in Mountain, go into Chair pose, then lower to the ground, IF you are feeling great bend at the knee (watch your joints), place foot on the opposite quad (standing/balancing leg).  Enjoy getting stronger, more balanced & focused with each practice!   I found this pose as well as many others (pigeon, low lunge, child’s pose) as a great stretch before and after running a 10 K Trail Run in the North Face Endurance Challenge Race on Bear Mountain, NY. 🙂
