In this video you will learn the Tree Pose, also known as Vrikshasana.

Stand straight with your feet together and your arms beside your thighs.

Shift your weight onto your left leg.

Bend your right knee and place the heel of your right foot at the root of the left thigh.

The toes of the right foot should be pointing down so that the sole is flat against the thigh.

The lifted foot may be placed below the straightened knee if you cannot lift it further.

However, do not place it directly beside the knee as this can cause injury.

Open your hips and point your right knee towards your right side.

As you find your balance, raise your arms all the way above your head and bring your palms together.

To maintain a steady balance, focus your gaze directly ahead of you on a fixed point.

Make sure your weight is distributed equally between your heel and the ball of your left foot.

Stay in this pose for 20 to 60 seconds stretching your spine and breathing deeply.

Ensure that the raised foot is vertically aligned with the center of the pelvis, shoulders and head.

To release from the pose, lower your arms to the sides, straighten your right leg and relax.

Now, repeat the same by raising your left heel up to the root of your right thigh.

When you get into the pose, avoid leaning to one side, twisting your hips or bending the supporting knee.

Return to the initial stance and relax.

In case of difficulty hold your palms at chest height.

This pose strengthens the legs, back and chest while improving balance and concentration.

You have now learnt Vrikshasana, the tree pose.
