Instead of popping a squat over the nasty public restroom bowl, go into Chair Pose. Keep your tushy pristine from pee on the seat and strengthen your ankles, thighs, calves and spine while emptying your bladder in Utkatasana. For shy pee-ers, turning public potty time into a mini yoga practice will allow them to relax and feel balanced so they can let the flow go.
Don’t forget to flush — if it’s gross come into Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana I (Extended Hand to Big Toe Pose) and hit the toilet lever with your foot as you lower it to the floor with an exhale.
If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat.
