Day 12: Yoga tree pose

Yoga Tree Pose 

Improve your balance with today's quick yoga posture

The book, Office Yoga, by Darrin Zeer, recommends that you try this pose just before going into a meeting or taking a call.

  1. Remove shoes and stand next to a table or chair for balance.
  2. Raise right foot up against the inside of your thigh.
  3. Place right hand on your foot if the foot starts to slide down.
  4. If you feel steady, place hands in front of your chest in a prayer position.
  5. Feel the standing foot rooted into the ground.
  6. Inhale and raise your arms overhead, keeping your palms together and stretching upwards through the fingertips.
  7. Relax and breathe.
  8. Stand straight and balanced.
  9. Switch legs slowly.
