Stand with the feet 3-4 feet apart, and take a deep squat pose. Turn the feet out to 45 degrees as you bend the knees over the toes, squatting down.
Try to press the hips forward and open, as you press the knees back. Relax the shoulders down the back as you open through the chest center.
Stay in the pose for 10-15 deep breaths.
**To go deeper, add a vigorous breath practice to Goddess Pose. As you take the pose, inhale through the nose and exhale with force through the mouth, making a “ha” sound. Take 20 -25 breaths in this practice.
Benefits of Goddess Pose:
- Opens the hips and groin
- Strengthens the lower body
- Facilitates balance and symmetry in the legs and ankles
