Chair Barre Exercise For Thighs

Inner-Thigh Burn to Rock a Mini by New Year's Eve

This thigh burner is a take on traditional Chair pose. The position, which is usually taken as a hold in yoga, has tiny pulses to make it shape your muscles from the inside out. Zip your legs together and sit into Chair.

Chair pose
Double leg

  • Stand with your legs together and soften your knees. Reach your arms overhead and touch your palms together as you fold your chest down toward your knees.
  • Hold this position as you drop your tail bone down in a small pulsing motion 10-15 times.
  • Keep your legs squeezed together for support.

  • While staying in Chair pose, lift your heels off of the ground and keep your tailbone down.
  • Pulse your seat toward your calves 10-15 times and hold the last pulse for five seconds to finish.
  • When you end in Chair position, make sure your back stays flat and think about framing your ears with your arms to keep them lifted for a beautiful finish.
