Vrkasana (Tree Pose)

Vrkasana (Tree Pose)

Benefits: This balancing pose invites you to find your emotional “center.”  How to do it: Begin in Tadasana (Mountain Pose). Shift your weight to your left leg and foot. Lift your right leg and place the sole of your right foot on your inner left thigh, using your hands if needed. Place your hands in Anjali Mudra (Salutation Seal). Focus on a point four to five feet ahead of you. Remain in this pose for 30 seconds to one minute, then release and repeat on the other side.
