Benefits

  • Foundational pose from all seated postures.
  • Strengthens and improves endurance of back, leg and arm muscles.
  • Opens chest, hips and groin.
  • Tones abdominal muscles.
  • Increases circulation.

Contraindications

  • If the body is leaning back it may be because tight hamstrings are dragging the sitting bones toward the knees and the back of the pelvis toward the floor. If that is happening elevate pelvis by sitting on a blanket.

Common Misalignments

  • Torso leaning back.
  • Shoulders forward.
  • Leg muscles relaxed.
