Chair Pose

Sure, Chair Pose might look easy, but it is a killer move for your thighs and glutes when done correctly. Be sure to focus on alignment to keep your body safe and get that sculpted lower body you're after.

  • Stand with your feet together in Mountain Pose. Bend your knees and lower your hips as you raise your arms overhead.
  • Focus on sitting back into your heels to relieve pressure from your knees and to target the thighs and glutes. Tuck your tailbone in and engage your abs, keeping your spine straight. Roll your shoulder blades back and down away from your ears to release any tension in the neck or upper body, and gaze up toward the ceiling.
  • Stay like this for five breaths.
