Begin standing, with feet slightly closer together than hip width distance apart. As you inhale, reach your arms up overhead. As you exhale sink the hips down and back as you bend your knees, just like sitting in a chair! Keep the back straight and stay for 3-5 breaths.
To add more heat to this pose, make it a flow! As you inhale rise to stand, and as you exhale sink back to chair. Repeat for 5-7 breaths.
You can also add chair pose to your sun salutation sequence to add an extra challenge! Add chair immediately after your first mountain pose, and again after your second forward fold.
