1. Tadasana variation (Seated Mountain Pose with Hands and Feet)
Sit on a chair. Lengthen your spine so your sitting bones drop into the seat and the crown of your head extends toward the sky. Place both feet on the floor (if they don't reach, use a stool or folded blanket). Imagine a light shining out from the center of your chest and try to shine the light forward. Bend your elbows and make gentle fists. Open your hands into claws, then spread your fingers wide. Return your hands into claws, then fists. Repeat 5 times. Next, keep the heels of your feet on the floor but lift the rest of the foot. Make "fists" with your toes, then spread them wide. Repeat 5 times.
