Yoga Pose

Tree Pose /VRKSASANA (Static)

Tree Pose /VRKSASANA (Static)

Begin in Tadasana (Mountain Pose).  Find a fixed focal point directly in front of you and align your visual and mental attention to this spot.  Slowly shift your weight over to your left leg as you also lift and lengthen your left leg above the hip.  Bend and lift your right knee and turn it out to the right and place the sole of your right foot on the midline (inner part) of your left calf, knee, or thigh. If possible put your right heel at your groin. Lift the navel and the heart and continue to lengthen the spine while you stare at your focal point.  Deep breathing.  Bring your palms together at your heart and press the palms together, hugging the invisible midline.  Take the palms upward along the midline above the head, continuing to press in while drawing the elbows open and the bottom of the shoulder blades down.

*Find an easy rhythm for 5-10 breaths and relax what you can relax.

Then, while maintaining this posture, practice closing your eyes for a few seconds and then opening again to reconnect with your focal point.  Over time and with practice you will develop a clearer image of yourself and your orientation with your Inner Eye and you will become more and more comfortable with this eyes closed experience.

*Repeat with the right leg as the standing leg.  
*Relax back in Tadasana.
