Yoga Poses & Positions for Athletes : Yoga for Athletes : Yoga Squat Pose for Athletes


So the next pose you want to come into is
the Squat. You can connect your feet to the floor. If you know you have tightness in your
inner groin or inner thigh areas you may take your feet and turn them out so that when you
sit down you can keep your heels on the floor, draw your palms together, extend your tailbone
down and draw the crown of your head up. As your palms press together, the thumbs come
towards the center of your chest and you feel a nice extension and openness in the front
of your heart center. Broaden there, feel your shoulders relax, your neck nice and long.
And focus on opening up on the inner thigh, inner groin area. Make sure your lower back
stays comfortable. Inhale. And then you can exhale, press into your feet and lift yourself
back up to standing.
