This pose requires a strong & steady body, challenges your sense of balance, opens the hips & heart, and calms & relieves stress.
Here, DC Ranch Village Yoga Instructor Valere Schlesinger shows us Tree Pose, with her hands at her heart for balance.
Here, Gainey Village Yoga Instructor Tess DeBlander shows us a variation of Tree Pose. If yo're looking for more of a challenge, extend your arms above your head and reach for the sky, with palms facing each other. You'll feel the extension in your back and heart as you relax into this pose. You can challenge yourself more by closing your eyes and finding your balance. (bonus points if you're at the beach!)
