Yoga Pose for Balance and Posture - the Tree!

The tree pose is yoga can help with balance, posture and general relaxation as it helps to focus one's mind on a fixed point while keeping balanced physically in the world around them. Wanna try it? Its easy! Just follow below:
1-First, stand tall with both feet on the ground, toes touching. While keeping your feet still, circle your body so that you are feeling your feet rooting into the ground.

2- Slowly take your right hand while lifting your right foot. Place hand on outside of foot and bring bottom of foot to sit on inside of left thigh.

3- Once your foot feels secure on your inner thigh, slowly lift your right hand off of your foot.

4- Take both hands and place in prayer position in front of your heart.

5- Pick a gaze point out in front of you and stand for 10 minutes, or until you feel you are done.

Great job!!! You've done the tree pose! Some people do this as a meditation practice and literally stay in "Tree" for an hour because it helps them to feel grounded and calm. Let me know how it works for you!
