Get Rooted: Practicing The Tree Pose
- First, stand upright while grounding down equally through your right and left foot.
- Balance both feet. Try to avoid leaning forward, back, left or right
- Engage all the muscles of your left leg. Feel them wrap around the bones.
- Lift and place your right foot onto the top of your left inner thigh with your toes pointing down.
- Hands move to heart center in prayer and then rise towards the sky.
- Hold this pose for several breathes. Remember trees bend and sway. Enjoy the subtle movements.
- Switch sides and repeat the steps.
Practice this pose in the morning for a few moments or whenever you are feeling a little off center. Most importantly, take time during your busy day to be still and strong. This pose will help strengthen your legs and keep your mind and body steady.
