Mountain Pose (Tadasana or Samasthiti)

Tadasana and Samasthiti are other names for Mountain Pose. In modern yoga, "monkey pose" is a standing position. This pose looks very simple, but internally your muscles are strong, active and working hard. It's a foundational pose for all standing yoga poses. Tadasana keeps your body active and alert. Continually doing this yoga can offer benefits for your mental and emotional health.

Mountain Pose

Beginner’s Tip

Your posture is really important. Place your feet where they would land if you were to move forward naturally and space them apart by a few inches to start in a balanced mountain pose. The knees and hips should remain pointed forward.


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 - Stand up on your yoga mat and lift your toes up and spread your toes wide, then place them back on the ground.  
2 - Lift your knee caps, engage your quadriceps muscles, and isometrically press the back of your knees forward. Then hug your upper thighs together.
3 - Keep your arms alongside your body and turn your palm and biceps to face forward. Your head should be in front and you should keep your spine long and straight.
4 - To create lumbar stability, inhale and lift your rib cage away from your pelvis, then exhale and hug the sides of your waist.
5 - Hold your breath for 10 to 15 seconds.
