05. Vrksasana: Tree Pose
Tree Pose is great for strengthening feet and ankles, as well as learning to engage the inner thigh of the standing leg and the glutes and hamstrings in the lifted leg. It gently deepens knee flexion, and allows for a variety of arm variations to achieve different effects upon the spine, shoulders, arms, chest, and neck. Performed well, it can tone the entire body and feel graceful, steady, and effortless.
