Horse Pose

Horse Pose

Level 1

Benefits: This pose is a common martial arts stance but you will find it often in yoga classes. Horse stance strengthens your legs and tones your glutes, while stretching your groin and inner thighs.

Honest Tip: This pose is really great for sculpting and toning your legs. Be sure to protect your knees by keeping them directly over your ankles! Make sure your feet aren’t turned out too far. Both femurs should be externally rotating and your feet should be turned out so that when you look down they are in line with the angle of your femurs.

Now go pause, pose, and find peace!
