Tree – Vrksasana

tree yoga pose -vrksasana

  • Start in Mountain Pose
  • Begin to lean your weight to one side and bring the top of that thigh back
  • Bring the sole of the opposite foot to touch either the calf, above the knee (never on the knee) or into the inner thigh (wherever your comfortable) of the standing leg
  • Square your hips forward to the front of the room
  • Focus on a point in front of you, and soften your gaze
  • Bring your palms together at your heart
  • Once you’ve found your balance, inhale and extend your arms up over head in line with your ears, keep your arms shoulder width apart, palms facing each other
  • Spread apart your fingers, wide like a starfish to help hold your balance
  • Continue to softly gaze at your focus point and breathe
