Dandasana (Staff Pose)


(dahn-DAHS-ah-na)

Level:

  • Beginner

Chakra:

Benefits: This is a great pose to focus on upright posture.  It strengthens your back muscles and stabilizes the core. It's a foundational yoga pose, one we often return to during our flows. 

How it's done:

  • Sit with your legs straight out in front of you. 
  • Place your feet as together as possible, big toe mounds touching.
  • Back straight
  • Head upright as if a rod were running from the crown of your head all the way down your spine 
  • Chin should be parallel to the floor
  • Hands placed on the ground at your hips.  Fingers can be pointed forward or behind you. 

     The beauties at NamasteTV created an excellent video with a tip for those with tight hamstrings.
