Sanskrit:  Vrikshasana

Imagine you are a tree. Your foot is the  root and your leg is the trunk.  Continue imagining your outstretched arm and head is the branches and leaves.  You maybe unsteady for a while and your body swaying back and forth and your leg go wobbly like a tree bending in the wind yet staying upright and keep concentrating at one point.  Yes, our body can maintain the balancing on one foot.

For a challenge, turn your head looking to your left while maintaining your posture firmly.  Repeat on the right side.  I find that it’s a big challenge as our body balances on one straight point and thus loosing balances  the moment we turn our head.

Imagine you are at work.
You follow every step as provided by YogaJess
Your boss walks by your door.
Your face turns red.

YogaJess: This is a good one.*rolling on floor laughing out loud!*
