Yoga posture of the week: Vrksasana or tree posture.

And with the arrival of the weekend, today we will know a new yoga posture. Very practical and easy to perform to start the weekend with the best energies and relaxed. It is important to remember that before starting this and any other yoga posture,  we must have our aroma diffuser ready with the essential oil palo santo. Another good option is to use the palo santo incense cones. This will help us to a better concentration at the time of performing the posture. Allowing also to perform the posture in a correct way.

The position I want to show you today, it is the posture of the tree or Vrksasana. This posture is known as the posture of balance. It is one of the most performed postures in yoga practice and one of the first positions that is learned in yoga class.

Its meaning being the following; VRKSA which means "tree" and ASANA which means "posture".

To carry out this position we will follow the following steps:

  • We start from the standing position of the mountain.

  • We carry the weight of our body to the right foot.

  • We flex the knee to the left.

  • We open from the hip to the left.

  • With the hip open we place the sole of the left foot on the inner part of the thigh or the right side of the thigh. Not in the knee.

  • We proceed to place our hands in a position of prayer in the center of the chest.

  • Extending towards the coccyx joining the shoulder blades in the back.

  • It is important to always breathe.

  • When we leave the postur, we take a deep breath.

Recommendation:

After performing the posture we can make an aromatic bath, using the essential oil and palo santo soap. This way we will make our body relax even more and the mind is released from all the work stress of the week.
