Watch the video for a step-by-step tutorial on how to do Tree Pose. 

Helpful tips as you watch the video:  

  • Start in Mountain Pose (Tadasana) with feet hip distance apart.
  • Move off the mat and practice on a hard surface (tile, hardwood).
  • Start tree pose with your toes on the Earth to first establish your alignment, then work your foot onto the calf or thigh if you feel stable (just NOT the knee).
  • Press the foot into the leg, leg into the foot. 
  • Bring your awareness to your feet grounding in and the spine lifts up and rises out of the pelvis
  • Keep the hips centered over the feet vs. shooting out to the side to counterbalance
  • Smile and relax the jaw and face!
