In our latest installment of TRX Moves of the Week, we’re doing a deep dive into a pose that yogis know and love: Chair Pose! Watch TRX for Yoga expert, Shauna Harrison, guide you through three Chair Pose variations using the TRX Suspension Trainer.
The first challenge is a TRX Chair Pose with an Overhead Press. Adjust your straps to mid-length and stand facing your anchor point. Stand with your feet together and place your hands in the foot cradles, with the back of your hands pressing against the inside loop of the foot cradles. Inhale and bring your arms overhead as you sit back and down into an invisible chair. Bend your elbows and then press overhead. Don’t forget to keep breathing!
When you’re ready to take this move to the next level, try coming up to your tiptoes (instead of flat feet), or start on your toes before straightening up to a standing position.
The second challenge is the TRX Chair with a Twist—both literally and figuratively. Start with your straps at mid-length and stand facing your anchor point. Stand with your feet together and place your hands in the foot cradles. Inhale and bring your arms overhead as you sit back into your chair pose. Keeping your hips stable and facing forward, rotate your torso to the right while continuing to press the back of your hands against the inside of the foot cradles. Repeat the rotation on your left side.
Start the same way for the third variation, TRX Chair to Squat Hops: straps at mid-length, standing facing the anchor point. This time, grip the handles with your hands while keeping your feet together. Hop your feet apart to a TRX Squat, then hop back together to return to your TRX Chair Pose. Rinse and repeat.
