We’ve explored standing poses in part one and began to love transitioning in part two. In part three, we focus on common seated poses from a beginner or level one class.
Most of modern life is spent sitting down with poor posture. Seated yoga poses help us train our spines to be straight, strong, and supple, even when compromised by a twist or an urge to slouch. Furthermore, not only do seated poses/asanas strengthen our back muscles, they strengthen our core, obliques and upper thighs as well. They are also fundamental when training our bodies to become more flexible.
Most seated yoga postures are suitable for beginning level students, as the majority are easily adapted to any level of strength or flexibility. Try these poses and tips to ease and deepen your yoga practice.
