Yoga Tips for Women: Sun God
Sun God is a great pose for strengthening quads, glutes, and adductors. This position is an easy to moderate pose; depending on the length of time you hold the position.
1. Starting from a wide base stance with your feet place flat on you’re matt and slightly turned out raise your arms to shoulder height.
2. Exhaling lower your body into a squat position. Inhaling squeeze your inner thighs together when coming back up. Hold this position for 5 to 8 breaths, or as a constant motion for 30 seconds.
3. Make sure to keep your spine straight, your toes relaxed, and your core muscles tight. This position is easier done sideways on your mat for grip.
4. Also with this pose you can do as a warm up exercise moving with each inhale and exhale, just be sure to keep the body in alignment when moving up and down.
