What is Tree Pose?
The tree pose, or Vrksasana, from the Sanskrit meaning tree, is one of the most well-known asana positions in the Western yogi playbook. With the aim to improve concentration, balance, and relaxation, the tree pose is a great way for beginner and advanced practitioners of yoga alike to start or end any routine.
How do you do Tree Pose?
Start by standing straight with a long, tall back and your feet aligned and touching. Your arms should be straight along either side of your body.
Take a few breaths and find a place or object in the room to focus your attention. Slowly shift your weight to your left leg and begin to raise your right foot off the floor. Align the sole of your right foot with the inside of your left thigh. The toes should be pointing down and your pelvis should be completely straight.
Stretch your arms straight up toward the ceiling with palms pressed together forming an inverted V.
