how can i grow at 22yrs


Nickki... Ha! This is common. Try pushing your foot into your leg, either ankle/calf/inner thigh & not the knee joint, and pushing your leg back into your foot. Make a connection that wont slip. This will also help you square off your pelvis more, rooting your energy downward so you can extend upwards more with your spine & crown. It is a beautiful thing to have a beginner's mind, never loose that ;-)


> Jen Wren: If you click on 'variations' you will read as follows; Stretch your arms straight up toward the ceiling, parallel to each other, palms facing, or touch the palms together forming an inverted V with the arms.


Says in variations to put arms up


My first time trying yoga. I think my branch kept sliding down the trunk..... I will get stronger! ha ha!!

Why does the photo show the hands extended upward but the instructions never say to do this?


this helps with some of my kamasutra positions


can you use a block for tree for toe touching earth..


I have a question, in the poses that are contradicted for high blood pressure, it there anything written that explains why there is a contradiction for each pose? Thanks


In tree, what is the position of the pelvis relative to the 3 planes of movement? And, what is at risk , and what puts it at risk when the pelvis is misaligned in Tree??
