Chair Yoga - Samashtiti Or Tadasana.






The chair in Tadasana provides a sense of direction and aids in proper posture. 


We list three different ways to use the chair:


1st Variation 

  • A chair from behind. A chair behind you can assist you move your shoulders back.
  • Reverse the chair and stand in front of it with your back to the backrest. 
  • Place your fingers on top of the backrest in Tadasana. 
  • Extend the spine and open the chest with the help of your hands. 


2nd Variation




  • For vertical alignment, use the backrest as a guide. 
  • A chair in front of you can assist you elevate your chest and evaluate your lateral alignment. 
  • The soft support of the chair aids in aligning and balancing the position, as well as making it even (sama). 
  • Toe mounds on chair legs 


3rd Variation 









  • The calf muscles and Achilles' tendons are elongated by lifting the toe mounds. 
  • This is especially beneficial for runners and bikers, who tend to shorten these muscles as a result of their activities. 
  • Stretching and massaging these muscles is vital because dilated calf muscles suggest venous blood buildup, which inhibits circulation.
