Tricks to Stay Balanced in Tree Pose (VIDEO)

Meagan McCrary

Tree Pose (Vrksasana) is typically among the first balancing postures learned in yoga asana, and is still one of my favorites. I love the symbolism of a tree with its roots reaching far down into the earth as the branches grow up and out.

In this two-minute tutorial, I share a few tricks of the trade to help you both ground and stabilize your Tree Pose. Remember: it’s okay to wobble. Be patient, have fun, and if you happen to fall don’t forget to smile.
