Get Rooted: Practicing The Tree Pose

Get Rooted: Practicing The Tree Pose

When the seasons change and holiday time arrives, it always seems like a challenge to stay grounded in our body and daily lives.  These times, as always, are a great opportunity to practice vrksasana, the tree pose. To do so, just follow these steps:
  • 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.
