After Adho Mukha Savasana, the next popular yoga pose we will talk about is called Vrikshasana.
Yoga contains a very few ‘standing poses’ and Vrikshasana is one of them. It is comparatively quite easy and quick-to-do. It is one of those poses that you could do daily!
How to do it:
- Stand with your feet together.
- Bring up the foot of your right leg and place it on the inner side of the left leg.
- Depending on your comfort level you can take your foot up to your thigh or keep it at knee level.
- Make sure you maintain your balance.
- Now fold your hands in the form of ‘namaskar’. Stretch your hands high above your head towards the ceiling.
- Pull your stomach in and try to maintain your balance.
- Now bring back your hands to their previous position and slowly relax your leg back.
- Repeat the same exercise with your other leg too.
Benefits of doing Vrikshasana:
- It is fruitful in strengthening arms and leg muscles.
- It helps in improving concentration.
- It is highly recommended to Sciatica patients.
- It calms your nerves and rejuvenates your mind and body.
