Also called:

Level:

  • Beginner

 

Chakra:

   

 

Benefits: This is often our first encounter with a balancing pose. As simple as it seems, it helps you develop good balance.  It strengthens your core,  legs, ankles, and feet. 

How it's done:

  • Stand tall with your feet together
  • "Ground" your feet - feel them root into the earth
  • Slowly lift one leg so that your foot rests on the opposite ankle, calf, thigh, or groin (avoid the knee)
  • Focus your gaze on a fixed point ahead of you
  • Raise your hands into the prayer position, overhead, or whatever feels good to you or helps maintain your balance
  • Relax your shoulders
  • Concentrate on maintaining your balance
