Urdhva Hastasana
Upward Salute
Tree Pose

Keeping the basics of Mountain pose, reach hands and arms out and up while inhaling (also look up!). Exhale hands and arms down to sides. Inhale up and exhale down, several times. Move the arms as if you were pushing through water. Move with the breathing. Be happy! Start with Hands in Prayer in front of heart. Bend right knee to side, kick stand the right foot by leaning the heal on inside of the opposite (left) ankle. Toes of the right foot on the floor. For more challenge lift the right foot up to the inside of the left calf or thigh. Careful not to place foot on inside of knee. When you have your balance reach the hands up to the sky. Repeat on other side. Standing balance postures help us to strengthen our concentration also lets us know we need to seek balancing our lives.
