YOGA FOCUS: TREE POSE HOW TO

Posted on

EASY STEPS ON HOW TO DO TREE POSE:

STEP 1:

Stand with feet hip distance apart.  Root your left foot down as if they were the roots of a tree.

STEP 2: 

Bend your right knee towards your chest (use your hand to bring your foot up if you need to) and open up the knee to the right like you’re opening up a gate.  Place the inside of your right foot near your inner left thigh (be sure not to place it on the knee!).

STEP 3:

Place your hands into Anjali Mudra (Hands to heart) and breath.  Navel in towards your skin.  Crown of the head reaching up towards the sky, finding length in the spine.  

STEP 4:

If you want to move on to full Tree Pose.  Extend your arms into a “V” shape over head, extending your branches and feeling strong, centered and calm.  

Starting your day with TREE POSE is a great way to find that calm first thing.  I like to also set an INTENTION in Tree Pose.  This can be a phrase, a word, a feeling, a color… anything that you want to set as your theme for your day.  Just make sure it’s positive!
