Mountain Pose aka Tadasana aka your “True North.”
It is the physical foundation of any yoga practice.
A simple pose that aligns your body, mind and breath towards a singular purpose.
All you need to do is stand tall, with legs active, shoulders back and down opening the chest and heart, with a deep breath in and out through your nose. Keep your eyes closed or lightly focused on one-point straight ahead.
Yoga does not and should not be complicated.
Floating into handstand can wait….for now just focus on standing tall and strong in Mountain Pose and you will get ALL the benefits that yoga has to offer. Complications just mask the true purpose, which is to notice what is showing up in your own body, mind and breath.
Wait…isn’t there some trick? Some advanced variation that will deepen the experience?
No, there is not.
There is power in the simplicity.
