Tadasana – standing strong as a mountain

Tadasana means Mountain pose. This is the start and end of our sun salutations and it’s a basic Yoga pose that the dedicated yogi, as well as anyone wanting to have a healthy and strong body, should learn.

Instructions for Tadasana:

  • Stand tall, but not stiff
  • Be mindful not to overextend your knees if you have hypermobility
  • Preserve the natural curvature of the spine (don’t tuck or tilt your tailbone)
  • Try to have your feet parallel to each other, even if they feel as if you are pigeon toeing.
  • Feet can be together or hip stance apart
  • Open your chest and have your heart in front of your brain

When you find the right balance in Tadasana you might even want to do your final meditation standing!
