This week: The Tree Pose

1. Stand with feet together, hips aligned over your heels and spine straightened. Make sure that your shoulders are back and relaxed.

2. Slide your right foot up your left leg, maintaining your balance. Your knee should be pointed to the side, away from your body.

3. Bring your hands in front of you, pressed together in front of your chest. (This is called your “heart center.”)

4. Exhale slowly while maintaining your balance. Focus your gaze on a single point ahead of you.

5. Hold the pose for eight to 10 seconds.

6. Repeat with your other leg.
