Shayna breaks down Chair Pose (Utkatasana), a Level 1 pose. Chair pose is a basic posture used to transition through Surya Namaskar "B".  It is also called "Fierce Pose".  It builds tremendous lower body strength, balance, core and lengthens the spine.  The strength you will receive by doing this pose will energize you throughout your practice. Modification- You could always keep the feet hips distance rather than side by side for a more gentle version.  Only bend the knees to your degree without comprising the lengthening of the spine. Follow Shayna step by step as she gets you sitting in your most comfortable and strong chair!
