Asana Laboratory: Tree pose
Here is our next powerful balancing yoga posture, the Tree Pose, Vrksasana. (Sanskrit name = वृक्षासन) 🤸♂️Vriksh = tree and asana = pose.
Tree pose is for sure one of the first postures any yogi learns in their yoga journey. It seems simple enough until you take a step back and start looking at the details.🧐
This pose is physically challenging for the hips, balance, ankles, and feet. Moreover, Vrksasana definitely challenges you emotionally, as well: it changes daily depending on your general mood, the day you’ve had, the amount of sleep you got, interactions that happened right before practice, and so much more.🤷♀️
Here are just a few of the Vrksasana's physical and emotional benefits:
💪 establishes strength and balance in the legs, ankles and feet
💪 is an active hip and chest-opener and fortifies your Muladhara (first or "root") Chakra
💪 makes you feel centred, steady, and grounded
💪 helps to enhance confidence and create a more positive level of self-esteem
💪 makes you cool off and slow down
💪 through the practice of balance, you develop poise, concentration, and coordination
💪 prepares you for almost all other balances
