Tadasana, Mountain Pose is the foundation of all other yoga poses! And since, all bodies are unique, each Mountain Pose is different. This is the perfect analogy for acceptance. Yoga teaches us that we have infinite worth and do not need fixing so there is no need to shift or change your unique Mountain pose to look like someone else’s!
A great place to learn your unique alignment and how to engage the muscles to support you. Maximizes the flow of prana
- Start standing with feet underneath the pelvis in a place that feels supportive. Allow the toes to point where they naturally fall (they may not point forward.)
- Weight even between both feet and all 4 corners of each foot.
- Legs straight and engaged, without locking the knees.
- Hips stacked above legs and above feet. Both hip bones pointed forward.
- Lengthen the public bone and tain bone down evenly.
- Center your shoulders between the front and back of your body and lift the rib cage up away from the pelvis to lengthen all 4 sides of the waist.
- Chin and top of head are parallel to the floor. Lift the crown of the head to the ceiling.
