Yoga Pose: Tree Pose

medium_8345854877

Tree pose is the perfect pose to do when you are stressed out. It should help you relax because it takes a lot of balance and focus to maintain both breathing and the posture.

Directions:
– Stand up straight and slowly place your right (or left which ever is most comfortable to start) foot on the inside of your left thigh or calf. Make sure your knee is pointing straight out to the side.
– Put your hands in a prayer position and take 3 to 5 deep breaths. Inhaling and exhaling slowly.
– Slowly raise your hands above your head and hold for another 3 to 5 breaths.
– Repeat on the opposite side.

Namaste!
