To perform the Mountain Pose, bring the feet together while standing, ground down through your heels and legs, draw up with your thighs, broaden your collarbones, align your shoulders with your body, and elongate your neck upwards. Your hands and arms can be in a variety of poses from palms to the side facing inward, to outward facing, or in prayer at the chest.
