What it is: This is a great pose for a crowded classroom, because you won’t need a lot of space. Each student can stand at his/her desk for this one.
Why we love it: It’s a great energizing pose for all ages, and strengthens the ankles, calves, thighs and spines while stretching the shoulders and chest.
How you do it:
For more challenge:
If your students are new to this pose, you can have them use the wall as back support. The twisting in the challenge strengthens the lower body and lengthen the upper body. It takes focus and will power to stay in a twisting pose. You can also follow along with our students doing Chair 1 and Chair 2.
