Yoga Exercises Deeper Squats

Yoga has a broad array of mind-blowing poses. And, the best of all, there are multiple poses for each part of the body. For people who are looking to strengthen their thighs and limb joints, yoga has provided with deep squat poses. You can check them out below:

  • Yoga squat: Stand with feet apart to shoulder length. Make sure your toes point outwards. Now, with your back straight, squat to a level where you hamstrings touch the calves of your limbs. While doing this, make sure your heels are stable on the ground. When you stabilize in this position, fold your hands like in a prayer. While doing so, your elbows should be resting on your thighs.
  • Goddess stance: Stand with feet apart to shoulder length with the toes outward. Raise your arms and extend your palms facing opposite to each other. Now slowly squat downwards. Keep your heels planted firmly on the floor while moving down. This might be a little stressful for beginners, so do not exert too much pressure on your thighs. To ease the pressure, swaying the hips or rotating them in a clockwise or counter clockwise motion can help.
  • Warrior stance:Put one foot forward and with your arms high above in a prayer position, lunge forward. Make sure you back is straight while doing this. Go as far as you can go in a comfortable way. And, then stay there for 15-20 seconds. This will also improve your balance. Repeat the same with the other foot.
  • Crescent lunge:This one is an advanced form of the warrior stance. While in a warrior form, move the sole of your foot planted at the back upwards so that it does not touch the ground anymore. Now, extend your back as far as you can. Repeat the same for the other foot.

These yoga poses can be a great workout for strengthening your thighs. Add them to your daily routine for improving your balance and limb strength to a greater level. Just remember to be careful while doing them as they do require proper balancing for beginners.
