Yoga Tips for Women: Mountain Pose
This is a common yoga pose. It requires you to really plant yourself into the ground which works the legs and feet.
Stand with your legs and back straight. Big toes, ankles, and heels touching. Contract the thighs, keeping them strong and straight. Contract the abs, pulling the bellybutton towards the spine, tailbone slightly tucked. Keep the back straight, shoulders down. Extend through the crown of your head, gaze soft. Bring the hands into a prayer position in front of the heart. This a pose that many yoga classes and standing poses begin and end with. Hold this pose for 10 breaths in and out through the nose.
