The Tree Pose in yoga has many benefits. It stretches your thigh, groin, torso and shoulders while building strength in your ankles and calves. It also tones abdominal muscles and challenges your balance.
This is a great pose for soccer or basketball players to help improve accuracy with passes and shots.
So how do you do perform this pose correctly? Lois Maple, PT with OrthoCarolina, shares her advice.
Once you complete the pose on one leg, switch to the other leg. The longer you hold this pose the more your balance is challenged.
