Lean Yoga Moves

Staff Pose

This pose allows you to explore your deep inner ab muscles, engage your pelvic floor, lengthen the backs of your thighs and strengthen your low back muscles. It's a wonderful for creating a more enlightened posture awareness.

Sit up in a long, tall, relaxed posture with your legs straight out in front of you and together. Place your fingertips on the floor slightly behind your hips and, if comfortable, point them forward. Press down through the fingertips as you lift up through the spine, rib cage and chest, making yourself as long and tall as possible. At the same time press the backs of your legs firmly into the floor.
