My Day 13 Yoga

Practising this pose daily gives you a perfect posture..
 Tadasana(Standing Mountain Pose):
This is the basics of position,attentiveness and organization.They help setup for most of the asanas.The pose roots the body to the ground, permitting it to grow or to stand tall.Good posture is paramount in yoga, and Tadasana is your first lesson or pose on posture.

If you have back or knee injuries or are pregnant, avoid this pose.

  • Stand with your feet together or slightly apart. The weight of your body should be evenly distributed between the toes, balls, and heels of your feet. 
  • Keep your knees as straight as possible without locking them. Pay attention to your stomach, but do not suck it in or let it hang down.
  •  Keep your shoulders and arms calm and straight. Arms remain at your sides. 
  • Your head should look directly ahead. Do not pull your neck muscles.
  • Calm down your eyes and try to arrange the body from head to toe as you take breaths. Your inhalation should be clear and strong as it moves through you.
  • Your inhalation and exhalation should be natural, giving you a sense of relaxation. 
  • Now inhaling slowly stretch your hands upwards as shown in fig.
  • Try to be in this position for 20 seconds.
  • Slowly exhaling bring your hands on your head as shown in third pic. 
Tadasana is usually the starting position for all the standing poses. But it's useful to practice Tadasana as a pose in itself. Stay in the pose for 30 seconds to 1 minute, breathing easily. 

  • Improves posture.
  • Strengthens thighs, knees, and ankles.
  •  Firms abdomen and buttocks.
  • Relieves sciatica. 
  • Reduces flat feet

  Check that your ear hole, the center of your shoulder joint, the center of your outer hip, and your outer ankle bone are in one line, perpendicular to the floor.
