Deep shoulder-opening Squat


The other day I was listening to the radio and the announcer said the next programme was about squatting. Great I thought I will listen in. Imagine my disappointment to find it was about squatting in unused buildings! Anyhow I was reminded that I had not shared this pose with you!

Begin standing with feet turned out. On an exhale drop down to a deep squat balancing on the balls of feet. Allow the chest to drop forward between the knees and when you have your balance on an inhale lift both arms up and as far overhead as possible. Stay here for 5 deep breaths before rising back up using the power of your quads.
