Yoga Pose of the Month 
(as seen in the picture above)
Chair Pose, Utkatasana
As most of my students know, Chair Pose is one of my favorites. It is a great all-levels pose that can build heat and strength throughout the body.

  • Make sure there is more weight in the heels than the toes.
  • You should be able to see your toes. Knees should not be reaching out in front of your toes.
  • Squeeze shins and thighs together.
  • Create a little backbend in the upper spine.
  • Use lower abdominal muscles to help lengthen through the sides of the waist and support your lower back.
