Dandasana Staff Pose



Sit with your legs straight in front of you, feet hip-width apart (or less), toes pointing up. Place your hands on the floor alongside your hips, fingers pointing forward. Keep your torso vertical and lengthen up out of your sitbones, with the aid of your arms pressing down through your palms. Also lengthen out through your heels. Soften your abdomen, open your chest, and keep your shoulders relaxed down away from your ears. Breathe smoothly and naturally as you hold the pose.
