Originally yoga booty was as nice as a squat butt, but over time, yogis decided that yoga could supplement for working out. As much as I don’t knock yoga as a good exercise, weight lifting is an essential part of exercising, and it should not be over looked, no matter that other forms of fitness you are participating in.
Squatting can help you yoga better, and yoga can help you squat better.
I am going to show you a few different yoga poses that may help your squat improve.
This help to promote balance as well as inner leg strength. Helps to improve pistols.
Cross one leg over the other and sit back into a squat.
Opens the hips, improves balance, increases core and leg strength. Helps with catch position, and pistols.
Balancing on the left foot, take the right foot to the left knee, so your legs look like a 4, then sit back into a chair pose.
Helps to stretch the hamstring, the calf, and the hip of one leg while simultaneously stretching the hip flexor of the other leg. Helps get any squat deeper (and recovering from leg day).
From a Right Lunge: Take the Back knee to the ground, and walk the right foot over to the left hand dropping the right knee by the right hand, and setting the hips on the floor. (the switch to the other side)
Opens up the hips. Increases Dorsi flexion. This can help drive your heels, squat down to catch position, and keeping the knees back in deep squats, and dead lifts.
Take the feet shoulder width apart, toes pointing out. Squat down as far as you can without hurting the knees. Bring the hips under the shoulders.
