Yoga Pose of the Day – Awkward Chair Pose (Utkatasana)

As awkward as the name makes the position seem, is a crucial yoga pose one should master in daily yoga routines. The first step is to inhale deeply and raise your arms perpendicularly to the floor. The key point here is that both arms should be parallel to each other and the fists clenched, with palms facing inwards.

Exhale and bend your knees gradually while being careful of the fact that the thighs should remain parallel to the floor as much as possible. The front torso has to form a right angle with the top of the thighs, and in order to do so, the knees will automatically project out over the feet once you bend them. In addition, the torso needs to be leaned slightly forward to the extent that it forms rights angles with the thighs. Firm your shoulder blades in an erect position against the back.

Maintain the posture for about 30 seconds to a minute as is appropriate according to your stamina.  Do not randomly finish the pose after the designated times; rather straighten your knees whilst inhaling and lifting strongly through the arms. Stay like this and maintain the rhythm of breath to hold the awkward chair pose that you just mastered.
