Tadasana

Tadasana, or the Mountain Pose is a standing Yoga posture with feet together and hands at the sides of the body, and improves one's height and flexibility.Tadasana is wonderful for improving your posture and alignment, toning the spinal nerves, and creating a sense of awareness through the body. It can be used as a resting pose or a preparatory pose for almost any standing asana.

How To Do

  • Stand with your feet together with the big toes and heals touching. Ensure that your toes are in alignment. If this is uncomfortable or causes instability, give your feet several inches of room, but no wider than hip width apart.
  • Lift the toes into the air, spreading them out then planting firmly into the ground. Center your body so that you feel your weight evenly distributed through the bottom of your feet.
  • Firm the legs without locking the knees. Pull the ankles slightly apart lifting the arches of your feet. Feel the grounding of your body through the legs as you root them into your feet and into the ground.
  • Arms are relaxed at the side of the body; shoulders pull slightly away and back from the ears opening the chest. Pull the pubic bone inward allowing the tailbone to point towards the floor, lengthening the entire spine through the neck and top of the head.
  • Balance the crown of your head directly over the center of your pelvis, with the underside of your chin parallel to the floor, throat soft, and the tongue wide and flat on the floor of your mouth. Soften your eyes.
  • Tadasana is usually the starting position for all the standing poses. But it's useful to practice Tadasana as a pose in itself. Stay in the pose for 30 seconds to 1 minute, breathing easily.
