Mountain pose. To the lax eye it would seem a person is just standing. Mountain pose requires much more of us. In a sense it is the perfect pose for being in full connection with our bodies. The poses we wear affect our projection of confidence with others and ourselves. Take the time to stand fully and revel in your body’s ability to ground itself while simultaneously reaching its height.
Therapeutic benefits of the pose are:
- Reduce the effects of flat feet.
- Improve your posture.
- Strengthens the lower part of your body and load bearing joints.
- Improve concentration and increase alertness.
Here’s a video by a favorite Youtube instructor, Adriene.
