Yoga Standing Poses

Share

By Kyran Doyle In Yoga

Yoga is a great way to improve flexibility and strength in your body. In this article we will go over some standing poses to use in your practice.

YOGA: MOUNTAIN POSE (TADASANA)

The mountain pose is the foundation of all standing poses. It might not look like much but the mountain pose is an important starting position, resting pose and tool to improve posture which leads to many other standing poses in yoga.

STANDING FORWARD BEND (UTTANASANA)

Standing forward bend is a smooth transition from mountain pose and you will find a deep stretch in the entire back body.

WARRIOR I POSE (VIRABHADRASANA I)

There are three variations of the warrior pose of which this is number I.

WARRIOR II (VIRABHADRASANA II)

Warrior II stretches and strengthens the body in the one movement, allowing you to feel like a strong warrior. This pose will build strength your ankles, legs, glutes, core, back and shoulders.

REVERSE WARRIOR (VIPARITA VIRABHADRASANA)

Reverse Warrior is a variation of the warrior II pose that provide a great stretch in the side body.
