Fierce Pose is one people either love or loathe, but this pose works your whole body — especially your core and legs. Pretend you're sitting back in a chair while keeping your chest open toward the front of your mat. Engaging your glutes will keep your sink deeper and grow stronger.
- From Downward Facing Dog, step or hop your feet together at the top of your mat.
- Gaze slightly forward before rolling up, vertebrae by vertebrae, until you're in Mountain Pose.
- Bend your knees and lower your hips as you raise your arms overhead.
- Focus on sitting back onto your heels. Tuck your tailbone in and engage your abs, keeping your spine straight. Relax your shoulders as you gaze up toward the ceiling. Stay like this for five breaths.
