tracywaren. When practicing chair pose, I usually start out in a bar stool height

When practicing chair pose, I usually start out in a bar stool height (left) and then slowly bend the knees deeper into full chair pose (right). Starting out in the bar stool position helps me to get the correct alignment and prepare for sitting lower into chair. Once you are positioned into chair, challenge yourself with holding the position for one minute to build both strength and stamina. And, don’t forget to focus on your breath, making it smooth and even. You are becoming more and more Fierce with each breath.💞 #chairpose #barstool #befierce

blackgirlyoga. 🎉Day 2 of #bgytribechallenge is with the ohmie @sunkissed__goddess 🙌

🎉Day 2 of #bgytribechallenge is with the ohmie @sunkissed__goddess 🙌🏾 . . - I decided to do a variation of Fierce aka #ChairPose that’s a little high on the difficult monitor because I been feeling like I can do anything. Plus, I thought it would be the perfect pose for this challenge because Chair teaches us to balance the work of grounding back and down, while lengthening the spine, twisting and opening the chest. That’s a lot to ask of the body, heart and mind but that’s why we practice 🤗💛. It’s also fitting that the benefits of Chair includes strengthen and grounding the legs and hips, bringing length and lightness to the spine, as well as to expanding the chest. I know I’m tripping with my variation, but try your variation of chair and tag us to play 🤸🏽‍♂️. Remember to be safe and have fun playing 🧘🏾‍♀️ Can't wait to see your pics.

#Utkatasana ↔️ #AwkwardChairPose or #FiercePose or #PowerfulPose or #ThunderBoltPose on 👉@yogaalignment with @janiceliou ・ ・ ・ BUT WHAT is the RIGHT way?! One of the biggest takeaways from my first YTT is that there is rarely ONE singular “right” way for every body. Take chair pose for example (which, btw...is my most dreaded pose in a yoga class 😂). Some cues you might have heard: draw your shoulders down your back, tuck (or lengthen) your tailbone, draw the ribs down, weight in your heels, sit lower...lower...LOWERRRRRRR...still go LOWER... . While those are all great cues there are so many other modifications and variations to this simply complicated pose: - Cactus your arms - to help open your chest (backbend warmups) - Push an invisible ceiling away from you - prep for handstand - Separate feet hips width apart - also helps reduce strain in your low back - Extend one leg - to build leg strength - Chair upside down! These are to just name a few! . The pose doesn’t end at a “right” way. And what is ‘right’ for one person’s body may not necessarily be ‘right’ for someone else. So explore all the different ways and then practice (or create) what’s challenging for YOU and ‘right’ for YOUR body. . . #yogaalignment #yoga #improveyourpractice

inflexibleyogis. Chair pose! We have all been there 😅 Such an amazing pose for toning

Chair pose! We have all been there 😅 Such an amazing pose for toning the legs and working posterior tilt but it is so often done wrong! Save this for your personal practice and tag a friend that could use this! Read below for more details. Thanks for sharing @deandreyoga #inflexibleyogis ・・・ Struggle with finding ease in chair pose? I usually use a block in between my thighs and a block in between my hands to find great engagement and create awareness in the pose. Rule of thumb is if you can’t look down and see your toes sit into your heels more and grow a little taller, relax the shoulders but have strong arms and think happy thoughts ;)

Good morning friends 🌼 my girl @begoodkarma gave us one of my fave arm balances, Eight-Angle pose for Day 9 of #bgytribechallenge Strong and Fierce 🔥 . . I love that @yogasihnuu shared the story behind this pose; I will share a lil numerology. When we turn the number 8 on its' side, it appears as an infinity symbol. It is the union of material and spiritual strength, of feminine and masculine energy. This asana represents that to me, the masculine power in the chaturanga arms meeting the feminine curves of the legs as the ankles connect. Check out @begoodkarma's post for instructions on how to properly warm up and get into this asana and maybe think more about the energy and lesson behind the pose, and less about how it looks 💗 . . . 📸: @glorychildproductions . . .

Sorry for late posting today. In times of hosting a challenge I prepare my post the evening before and even draft it so that I - ideally - only have to hit the send button. Guess what? When I wake up I always edit my caption because I have a better idea 😂 ⠀ Day 8 of #Yogissentials is #ChairPose aka #FiercePose or #Utkatasana ⚡️ ⠀ When I started with yoga I learned that in Chair Pose your knees should be only that far forward so that you still can see your toes (when heels down). ⠀ For the traditional variation the feet, knees, legs are together as if you have one giant leg. ⠀ From Tadasana (we did that on our first day) fold into half with bent knees and raise your upper body. Don’t unbend your knees. Arms lift sideways until the hands meet over your head. If it’s too much for your shoulders open the arms or grab your elbows like I did here. The middle of the palms fits perfectly over the bone of your elbows. Create a frame, pull your hands apart and open up your windows. ⠀ You don’t have to but for me coming onto the balls of my feet is supporting the backbend in this pose. In foot reflexology and in TCM the balls of your feet are related to your lungs. In coming onto the balls of your feet you are activating that area. It’s like a booster. And guess what you need to bend back? You need your lungs available. If you look closely you will see a nice fold in the hips and the backbend in the upper body. ⠀ A big shout out to each and everyone of you. I loved watching your sun salutations. You all did so great (and I still haven’t seen all posts in the gallery). You make us hosts really happy 🤗 ⠀ Check out my wonderful co-hosts Cristina, Brian & Ray later today to see their variations ❤️ ⠀ Your Hosts: @bchanwarrior @highonyoga @raymurse_yoga @yogamand ⠀ our Sponsors: @byoganow @moonchildyogawear (gifted mat & outfit) @ohmmeapparel ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #SunSalute #balance #tippytoes #alignmentmatters #education #everydayyoga #yogaphotography #startsomewhere #yogaforbeginners #newtoyoga #yogatips #practicepracticepractice #yogateachers #yogaposeoftheday #yogapractice #enjoythejourney

Day 4 of #YogisAgeGracefully is Get Tip Toe Flirty For 30 with a #toebalance. I was playing with ideas and got this cute pose that is somewhat inspired by a bound malasana variation I saw @blue_yagoo effortlessly and gorgeously do on her page. Mine isn’t bound, nor is it malasana with heels on floor. So, what name can this pose get? 🤔 💋 Hosts: @CrazyAsiaYoga @JessieYogaHill @OmniYogaGirl @YogicByNature @Sophie_Seoul_Yoga @Wapatoose 💜 Sponsors: @TheArtOfBrad @FlowAndFlyYoga @GreatCBDReviews @TheWayMat @OmSoulShop @CBD_Oil_Solutions @YourBondhu - use code “BondhuYogis” throughout the challenge for 15% off! 💋 #yogafriends #instafrends #yogafam #instafam #yoga #fitness #flexibility #fitlife #yogisinspiringyogis #tiptoe #sidesquat #balancepose #balance #counterbalance #fierce #fiercepose #yogi #yogini #babygrasshopper

This fierce pose variation is also called “awkward pose” 🤣. Not exactly sure why. 🤷🏽‍♀️ I can think of several other poses that could have this nickname 🤔 The only awkward part was that Zoee refused to move and I had to make sure not to step on her. We were both soaking up the last bit of sun ☀️ before it set behind the house. . . . This is my first 🅰️ pose to share for Thanksgivingasanas and sharing it also for #yogisstretchmonday with our hosts @arcierojoe , Joe, @t_om_ma_h , Tom and @adam_earthdominion , Adam. Please join and share a stretch today. Tagging a few but anyone can join.
