Take the tree pose to the next level with StrongBoard Balance Board!
- Stand on the platform with the feet together and the arms by your sides.
- Bend the right leg at the knee, raise the right thigh and bring the sole of the right foot as high up the inside of the left thigh as possible.
- Balancing on the left foot, raise both arms over the head keeping the elbows unbent and joining the palms together. Hold the posture while breathing gently through the nostrils for about 10 complete breaths.
- Lower the arms and right leg and return to the standing position with feet together and arms at the sides. Pause for a few moments and repeat on the opposite leg.
Tips: Imagine that the foot you are balanced on is the root of the tree and the leg is the trunk. Continue by imagining the head and outstretched arms as the branches and leaves of the tree. As you advance in this posture and are able to remain standing for more than a few moments, try closing the eyes and maintaining your balance. Hold the Tree Pose as long as you comfortably can. Repeat it two or three times on each leg.
