Tree Pose

Vriksha –asana

‘Vriksha’ means tree. Ordinary trees give mankind a lot. They provide flowers, fruit, wood, and shade. They serve as homes for birds and animals. Trees also protect soil from erosion. Like trees, Yoga asanas also give many benefits. Health, strength, flexibility , concentration and grace are all benefits of a regular practice.

Organising the Pose:-

  • Stand in Tadasana
  • Bend your right knee. Place your right foot on your left thigh. Rest your hands on your hips.
  • Stretch your arms up and join your palms. This is ‘Vriksha asana’
  • Return to Tadasana and repeat on other side.
  • Then come back to Tadasana

DO:

  • visualise yourself as a tall tree with deep roots.
  • keep your hips level and aligned
  • keep your sitting bones stretching downward.

DON’T:

  • sway like a tree in the wind
  • bring your bent knee forward
  • push your ribcage forward as you lift your arms and breastbone up

BENEFITS:

  • Strengthens the shoulders and legs
  • Improves concentration and balance

So, stay tall and strong yet deeply rooted in yourself, facing life with a smile!

Namaste!
