    • Mountain Pose – Tadasana


    What People Normally Do: Stand upright with feet being parallel. The big toes should touch each other and your line of sight should be in parallel to the ground.

    Where is the Mistake: Don’t squish your feet together in yoga. The heels and your toes must touch but there should be at least a half or one-inch gap.

    Don’t tuck your hips. Think of a proper hip alignment for the correct functioning of your spinal cord.

    • Chair Pose – Utkatasana


    What People Normally Do: You need to bent your ankles and thighs as parallel as possible to the ground. If you are looking for a more advanced pose, then try for the feet coming closer and inhaling as you raise your hands in the air.

    Where is the Mistake: When you are doing the cow pose incorrectly, you risk your spine. So try to keep the spine long.

    • Forward Fold Pose – Uttanasana


    What People Normally Do: Initialize with the mountain pose. While maintaining the straightness of your spine, fold from your hip on exhale. Now let your head hand with some heaviness while relaxing the jaw. If you are at an intermediate or beginner’s stage, you can keep your width a little more while practicing.

    Where is the Mistake: Many people tend to press their knee back rather than lifting the same. Also, you would need to avoid the knee hypertension.

    • Downward Facing Dog – Adho Mukha Svanasana


    What People Normally Do: Start all over from the Mountain Pose. And touch the ground with a “V” shape forward. While doing this, make sure that you exhale and inhale thoroughly and your sight should be towards the belly or legs.

    Where is the Mistake: Don’t stress your wrists and keep the contact with the ground firm. Also, make sure that there is coordination between arms and shoulders. Additionally, don’t go for the arched or rounded back.
