Tree Pose is often one of the first yoga poses that children learn. It can be a challenging balancing pose, that even the youngest yogis love to try!
As your balance increases and you are ready for a challenge, try placing your foot higher on your leg, being careful to avoid pressing it against your knee. To encourage breathing in this pose, gently blow a breeze through your tree branches!
Begin in Mountain Pose.
To help with balance, extend your arms out to either side.
Bend one knee to the side, and set your toes on the floor and your heel against your ankle.
Lift your hands up to the sky.
Hold this pose for a couple of breaths, then lower your arms and stand on both legs.
Repeat on your opposite side.
