Chair Yoga - Utthita Parsvakonasana


Utthita Parsvakonasana is a variation of  Parsvakonasana. 


Buttock on the seat is the first variation. 



  • The chair can be utilized to support the buttock of the front leg, just like in Virabhadrasana II. 
  • This has comparable benefits and allows you to focus on the stretch while reducing the burden. Rolling the chest up is made easier by gripping the chair in front of you. 
  • Rolling the upper shoulder back is made easier by gripping the chair from behind (left shoulder in and ). 
  • The chair also aids with chest elevation. Another alternative is to turn the chair around and place the front leg underneath the backrest. 
  • When doing the position on the right (as in ), the chair supports the right armpit, which helps to keep the right waist length (which tends to shrink in this pose). 



Foot on the inverted chair (variation 2) 



  • The front leg's foot is elevated and placed on the sloped surface of the inverted chair in this variant.
  •  Utthita Trikonasana gives instructions on how to use the chair and the implications of this modification.
