Balance of the Day, Tree Pose

What an amazing balance this is! It might seem challenging if you’re new to yoga, but one of our roles is to show you how to adapt poses to suit your body, mood and experience level.

Once you’ve totally grounded your standing leg and fixed your eye gaze (drishti) in tree pose, you can experiment with style. Toes on the floor might be best for you, or you might be feeling extremely stable and ready to progress to placing your foot below your knee. Had an ace day and feeling steady as a rock? Brace your foot against your upper inner thigh as I’m doing, then breathe into Tree Pose.
