If you're used to doing squats, this pose will feel all too familiar. It's the yoga version of the basic squat and will have your thighs and tush burning.
- Stand with your feet together. Bend your knees and lower your hips as you raise your arms overhead.
- Focus on sitting back into your heels. Tuck your tailbone in and engage your abs, keeping your spine straight. Relax the shoulders as you gaze up toward the ceiling. Hold for five breaths.
