Vrksasana – Treepose

Our legs are created to support us. But do they really do? How often do we still stand? And how often do we do this on to feet, without hanging in our back or tipping from one feet to the other to be comfortable? We use to walk long distances, use our body as a working tool, but since the industrial revolution and later on the computer revolution our body is not used in the way it’s designed for. It will adjust over time, but physical evolution goes slow, while technological evolution goes with a tremendous speed. So we must counteract our bad posture habits. There are a few simple yoga poses to do with. After Tadasana (Samasthiti) Tree pose (vrksasana) is a good pose to do. It helps us develop more strength in our legs and a better awareness of equilibrium.

Getting in to Vrksasana – Tree pose
-Start in Tadasana with both feet together and hands beside your body.

-Bend your right leg at your knee joint and place your right foot on the inside of your left ankle, left lower leg or left thigh. Your toes are pointing down.

-Balance on your left leg.

-Bring the palms of your hands together in front of your chest. If you feel balanced you can bring your hands up, arms beside your ears.

-Stay in the pose for a few breaths.

-Slowly bring your arms down and with control place your right foot back on the floor.

-Repeat the same with your left foot.

 Benefits

-Vrksasana / Tree pose strengthens the leg muscles
