Tree Pose

Begin standing. Shift your weight to one leg as you lift the other leg off the ground. Place the foot of the lifted leg at either the ankle, calf, or thigh, NEVER at the knee!!! Make sure to keep the hip of your standing leg lifted and strong, don’t let it pop out to the side! Keep your hands at heart center, or lift them up overhead. Look up towards your hands to really challenge your balance. It’s helpful to focus on a singular point, either in front of you or above you if you’re looking up. Stay here for 3-5 breaths and repeat on the other leg.
