Vrksasana

Placing the right foot on the root of the left thigh, stand like a tree on the ground. This is called Vrksasana.

Technique :-

  1. Stand erect with legs together, hands by the side of thigh, gaze in front.

  2. Fold your right leg at the knee and place the sole near the left thigh joint.

  3. Bring both the hands in Namaskara Mudra.

  4. After maintaining it for some time, release your hands and stand on both the feet.

  5. Now practise similarly from the other leg. This completes one round of Vrikshasana.


Remember:-
  1. Stand erect.

  2. Folded knee should point toward their respective sides.

  3. This is a balancing pose. If you feel like losing your balance then come back and practise again.
Benefits and Limitations:-
  1. This improves body-minded co-ordination.

  2. Thigh and calf muscles are made strong.

  3. Those having complaint of reeling sensation should not practise it.
