- Come into a comfortable squat with feet slightly wider than your hips. Check to make sure your knees and feet are pointing in the same direction. If you feel a strain in your knees, don't go as deep into the squat. If your heels will not go flat against the floor, place small rolled-up towels under them for support.
- Using your core and back muscles, sit up as straight as you can.
- For additional support, bring your palms together and press your elbows against your inner knees.
NOTE: This pose may be difficult at first, and you may lose your balance, but don't worry: With practice it will become easier.
