Chair Pose — Utkatasana (OOT-kuh-TAHS-uh-nuh) — is a standing yoga pose that strengthens the thighs, butt, and hips. This variation, with a twist, provides a greater balance challenge while it stretches the spine, shoulders, and chest. Sanskrit name, is Parivrtta Utkatasana (PAHR-ee-VREE-tah OOT-kuh-TAHS-uh-nuh).
Warrior II ( Virabhadrasana II) strengthens your legs, back, shoulders, and arms, building stamina. It opens your hips and chest, and improves balance. It is called the Warrior in reference to the fierce warrior, an incarnation of Shiva.
Butterfly Pose-a nice way to stretch the back if you have tight hamstrings. If you have sciatica, elevate the hips by sitting on a blanket or cushion or avoid this pose. How to: Bring the soles of the feet together and then move them away from the groin. Allowing the back to round, fold forward and rest the hands on feet or floor. The head should hang down toward the heels. If the neck is sensitive, support it with the hands, resting elbows on thighs or blocks. A bolster could also be used to support the chest.
