Yoga Exercise - Tree Pose (Vrksasana)



The Tree Pose helps strengthen your thighs, calves, ankles and back. It can also increase the flexibility of your hips and groin. Your balance and concentration can also be improved with constant practice. This Yoga Pose is recommended for people who have Sciatica and flat feet.


STEP 1: Start with the Mountain Pose.

STEP 2:As you exhale, place your left foot on the inside part of your right leg, close to the groin area, with the toes pointing downward.

STEP 3: As you inhale, stretch your arms sideways to form a T, palms facing down.

STEP 4: As you exhale, bring your palms together in prayer position.

STEP 5: Raise your arms overhead, keeping your palms in prayer position. To maintain balance, it helps to focus your eyes on one point in front of you and keep on breathing through the belly.


In the beginning, you may use a back brace against a wall to help you keep yourself steady. People who are suffering from headache, insomnia, low blood and high blood pressure should take extra caution in doing this pose.

Do you repeat this for the other side? Or is it just left-foot-on-right-leg?

practice Yoga with Love in your Heart. Seek not the physical benifits but instead ask God to Bless your Yoga with His presance.

Namaste
