Yoga Pose Seated Feet Together


Standing Poses for Feet Together Yoga

Feet together poses in yoga can help to challenge balance and coordination, increase stability, and improve body awareness. Some of the most common poses include Mountain Pose, Downward Facing Dog, Warrior I and II, and Extended Side Angle.

Mountain Pose

Mountain Pose (Tadasana) is a standing yoga pose that helps to bring awareness to the physical body as well as to the breath. To do this pose with feet together, stand with feet touching, and imagine a straight line of energy through the ankles, legs, and spine. Hold the pose for several breaths and focus on breathing deeply throughout the pose.

Downward Facing Dog

Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) is a classic yoga pose that helps to stretch the entire body and open the shoulders. This pose can also be done with feet together for an extra challenge of balance. To practice this pose, start on hands and knees and with feet together, press the hands and tops of the feet into the ground. Then, press the hips up and back, as if pushing the ground away from you. Draw the shoulder blades down the back and hold the pose for several breaths.



Warrior I and II

Warrior I (Virabhadrasana I) and Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II) are both standing yoga poses that open the hips and build strength. Both of these poses can be practiced with feet together for a more intense challenge on the balance. To do Warrior I with feet together, stand with feet together, then raise one arm straight up, turn the hip to the side with your arm raised, and bend the standing leg at a 90° angle. To do Warrior II, stand with feet together, turn the hips to the side, raise the arms straight out to form a “T” shape, and bend the front leg so that it is at a 90° angle.

Extended Side Angle

Extended Side Angle (Utthita Parsvakonasana) is a standing yoga pose that strengthens the legs and hips, stretches the torso, and helps to open up the shoulders. To do this yoga pose with feet together, stand with feet together, then pivot to the side with one foot and bend the knee to 90°. Bring the arm that is closest to that bent knee down to the floor, then raise the other arm up, while pressing down on the foot and reaching up from the hip.

Feet together poses in yoga can be a great challenge for balance and coordination, and also help to bring awareness to the entire body. Whether you choose to practice Mountain Pose, Downward Facing Dog, Warrior I and II, or Extended Side Angle, make sure that you practice safety and take the necessary modifications if needed.
