Yoga {26} ~ Asanas/Poses {15} ~ Vrksasana/Tree Pose

Tree pose is a balancing pose that requires the yogi to stand rooted.

To enter this pose, stand on one leg with the foot of the other leg pressed against the inner thigh of the standing leg. The hands are stretched upward with the palms touching. Remain in this position for 30 seconds and repeat the same procedure on the other leg. If fully extending the arms is too difficult, the yogi can modify the pose by keeping the hands in prayer formation in front of the heart.

Tree pose may also be referred to as vrksasana in Sanskrit.
