For Yoga Squat, begin standing with feet wider than your hips. Toes should point outwards slightly. Bend at the knees and make sure knees move in the same direction as your toes. Allow hips to sink between heels. Lift chest and bring torso upright. Hands can remain on ground or you can bring the palms together in front of the chest. Use the elbows to press the knees wide.
Modifications: You may sit on a block to support this pose. If the heels come off the ground, you can place a folded blanket beneath the feet to support the ankles.
