Downward-Facing Tree (Adho Mukha Virksasana)

Downward-Facing Tree/Handstand Pose (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) forms a part of the arm balance sequence which needs the participation of the physical and mental body, alongside the practice of uddiyana bandha. As such, the Downward Facing Tree pose is taken into account as a base pose, as downward-facing tree pose variations are derived from this pose. Downward Facing Tree pose helps boost energy within the body and therefore is included in flow yoga sequences.

Downward-Facing Tree

Beginner’s Tip:

Follow the Downward-Facing Tree by finding the gap in To learn to follow the pose, place the toes on the wall with the heel pointed down. Their heels were pressed up against the wall. Walk the legs up the wall till the heels are in line with the hips and you're in an L form. Press the palms together and move the shoulder blades towards the wall as you carry the thighs and hips up to the ceiling. Carry one leg at a time up, walk the legs to the wall as adho mukha svanasana and rest in this pose.

NOTE: Before you start this, consult your doctor or an exercise professional about this pose. Don't try to do it alone.

Tip To Do -

1 - Start with your yoga mat and come to a downward dog pose, with your fingertips approximately five inches from the wall. On inhale, rock forward so that the shoulders stack directly over the wrists.
2 - Fix the gaze to some extent between and slightly earlier than the forefinger tips. If the hips aren't well beyond the shoulders, walk the feet for a number of inches.
3 - Take your first step with your hands on the exhale, keeping your legs fully straight and neutral.
4 - On the exhale, push off the forward foot to propel the pelvis and legs to the wall. Once each foot is up to the wall, flex the ankles and climb the heels up.
5 - Spin the inner thighs towards the wall and take the flesh of the buttocks towards the heels. Direct the front ribs towards the frontal hip bones.
6 - Hold for 5-10 breaths, then unharness the other leg gently to the ground and continue in a soft Uttanasana, keeping one leg at the wall for as long as possible.
