Yogini Squat
Credit: Bryan McCay
  1. 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.
  2. Using your core and back muscles, sit up as straight as you can.
  3. 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.
