Body Basics – Mountain Pose – Tadasana

Surprisingly to some this is an active pose that helps to increase posture, balance and focus. An opportunity to stand tall on your mat at the beginning or during class. It is important to learn the alignment as it is the foundation for all standing and balancing poses. Standing up properly can get some getting used to! 

 

Steps

Start with feet at hip width apart, palms rest by your sides and facing forward, let the breath be steady as you set your gaze softly before you, activate your quads and squeeze your heels toward each other, drop the tailbone, broaden the collarbone and lengthen through the neck, whole body is in one long line.

 

Contradictions

Due to the balance element of this posture please avoid doing it when feeling dizzy, low blood pressure or if you are experiencing headaches.
