The methodical application of pressure on your thigh muscles tones and strengthens them.


Perform this exercise by standing straight in Tadasana and bending your knees slightly as though you are sitting on an imaginary chair. Place one leg on the thigh of the other leg. Bend your body forwards to balance yourself, while stretching out your hands straight. Remain in this pose for 10-30 seconds and repeat this pose on the other side.
