Author(s):

Ratan Kumar Deshi and Dr. Vinita Bajpai Mishra

Abstract:

This topical essay investigates how the quadriceps and hamstring muscles are affected by two well-known yoga poses, Utkatasana (Chair Pose) and Virabhadrasana 2 (Warrior 2 Pose). These postures are essential to the practice of yoga and are well-known for having a substantial impact on lower body flexibility, strength, and stability. This paper seeks to clarify the precise anatomical and physiological changes in these muscle groups that take place during the performance of Utkatasana and Virabhadrasana 2 by a thorough analysis of pertinent scientific papers and literature. The results underline how crucial these postures are for encouraging healthy muscular growth and overall lower body health
