Tree Pose (Vrksasana)

Multiple yoga poses of men performing the Tree Pose

Tree Pose is a standing posture in which the Yoga will balance on one foot while bending the opposite leg and placing the foot on the inner thigh of the standing leg. Tree Pose helps the Yogi with balance and stability. Tree Pose tones the feet, legs, and glutes and helps to give strength to the bones of the hips and legs. Energetically, Tree Pose is known to help with balance, stability, self-expression, and confidence.
