9 VRKSASANA Tree Pose
Return to Mountain Pose with both of your feet planted firmly on the floor. Press your palms together at your heart, and move your weight into your right foot, keeping a slight bend in your knee. Place the bottom of your left foot just below or above your right knee. Press all four corners of your right foot into the ground, like your body is a tree—your foot growing roots deep into the earth. Now, reach the top of your head toward the sky, and grow your tree as tall as you can. You can keep your hands in Anjali Mudra (Salutation Seal) at your heart, or grow your branches by bringing your arms up toward the sky. If you wobble a little, pretend you’re swaying in the breeze. Hold for 3 breaths, then repeat on the other side.
