goddess/victory squat

utkata konasana

The goddess pose opens the hips and chest while strengthening and toning the lower body.

 Goddess pose stimulates the uro-genital, respiratory and cardiovascular systems.

From five pointed star, bend the elbows at shoulder height and turn the palms facing each other.

Turn the feet out 45 degrees facing the corners of the room, and as you exhale bend the knees over the toes squatting down.

Press the hips forward, press the knees back. Drop the shoulders down and back and press the chest toward the front of the room.

Keep the arms active, as if they were holding a big ball over your head.

 Look straight ahead with the chin parallel to the floor. Breathe and hold for 3-6 breaths.

To release: inhale and press into the feet, reaching the fingers out to the side walls, turning the toes back to center, coming back into 5 pointed star.

Place the palms on the thighs.
