Behold the beauty and benefits of Tree Pose (Vrikshasana). Such as life, achieving balance and stability is a daily challenge. By adding this pose to a yoga practice, it helps with focus, concentration, and balance. Trees are grounded and strong. Tree pose strengthens and stabilizes the standing leg or “trunk” up through the buttocks due to the weight-bearing aspect of it. The toning of the hip bones through this pose provides stability in the pelvic region of the body.
Like a majestic cherry tree blooms and reaches toward the sky, the spine lifts in Vrikshasana through the crown of the head. The stretch expands the calves, ankles, thighs, and groin as well as the chest and shoulders. It further strengthens the ligaments and tendons of the feet.
