Leg Exercises For Strength

 

An empowering strengthener for the buttocks and legs.   It’s common for yogis to be a bit weaker in the glutes (butt!) department and we must work hard to build strength here with some leg exercises.  It’s easy to slack off and accidentally not use the glutes when doing moves like this.  We need to make the mind, body connection and think about the buttocks whilst shifting weight backward towards the heels so that the butt pokes out behind as if sitting back onto a chair.  It’s called your behind for a reason you know!

If you have sore knees, then only take it a little way down to begin with to warm up.  Gradually take it a little deeper if it feels safe and ok to do so.

Practice the holds to get some warmth and intensity happening or keep it gentle, it’s up to you!  Building strength through the lower body is useful for maintaining bone density, preventing falls, and continuing to be able to get up and down off the floor.  An essential skill that we don’t miss until it’s gone.  Stay strong and get those legs and butt muscles working.

Goddess pose or fierce angle pose (I love the word fierce in there!) builds strength and stability within the lower body and a strong base for the hips and spine.    The aim is on reducing stress whilst increasing confidence.  Continue to breathe easily whilst in the pose to maintain a balance between strength and ease
