MOUNTAIN POSE (TADASANA)
Even though this pose looks like one of the simplest, it can be one of the most difficult to really perfect. HOW TO DO IT: Stand up straight with your feet planted firmly and evenly on the floor. Make sure that your knees stack over your ankles but aren’t locked straight. Engage your glutes and maintain a neutral pelvis. Brace your core muscles and bring your shoulders back and down. Keep your hands at your side with palms facing out or bring them to your heart center. Close your eyes and remain here for five to 10 breaths.
