Tree Pose

Drawing of a man and woman standing in Yoga Tree Pose with diagram of posture

Tree Pose (Vrksasana) is an essential balancing pose in yoga known for enhancing both physical and mental focus and concentration. Understood as a standing version of a seated meditative posture, the Tree Pose requires you to stand steadily on only one foot. To perform Tree Pose, begin in Mountain Pose, shift your weight to your left foot, and raise your right knee up to your inner left thigh. With your hands raised in prayer position at your chest, fix your gaze on an unmoving point in front of you while drawing down through your left foot.
