Toe Balance Pose – Beginner Level
you’ll need to be on your toes for this practice so we will start slowly just dipping our toes in and testing the water.
I love this quote I found which isn’t quite the way we’ll be using our toes at least not until the end of our practice but I still wanted to share.
“Yoga isn’t about touching your toes, it is what you learn on the way down”
Our peak pose is called Eka Pada Utkatasana and it is a one-legged version of chair pose where one leg is in the shape of pigeon pose
What are it benefits?….well it improves core strength and balance, opens the hips, and strengthens the legs.
You will be stretching your outer hips and gluteal muscles while engaging the hamstrings, quadriceps, and gluteus maximus.
We will be working on good focus using a drishti point to maintain this pose, which can really help clear your mind.
Opening your hips as this pose does is a great tonic for relieving the tightness that develops from sitting down for long periods of time.
