Mountain Pose

Mountains are strong and unwavering. Their permanence in the world can teach us to be steady and powerful. Mountains absorb the sun, rain, snow and brave the natural elements. When practicing Mountain pose, we align and ground ourselves. It is an active pose that helps improve posture, balance, and focus

Mountain pose can be done at a moment when you want to feel steady and grounded. If you are feeling like the wind might blow you over, if you are feeling racy and too fast, stand tall in Mountain. If you are feeling lethargic and can’t do too much and yearn to awake, stand in Mountain.
