Many of us use yoga blocks when we can’t reach the ground in a pose, but how about using the block while in Mountain Pose! Here are some suggestions:
- Stand with your feet as wide as your hips, and place the block in between your thighs. Squeeze the block, pulling your kneecaps up by engaging the quads and also using the inner thighs to spiral your thighs back towards the back of the room. By doing this, you are creating more space for your pelvic bowl and sit bones, allowing your body to be in proper alignment.
- Place the block in between your hands as you reach them up towards the sky. Palms facing inward, squeeze the block to activate your arm muscles.
