Tadasana may seem like an “easy” pose, but it’s really quite involved! Here are some ways to Step It Up in Tadasana:

  • Stand with your feet as wide as your hips. Lift your toes up, and gently place them on the mat. Make sure not to grip your toes.

  • Engage your quads to pull your kneecaps up and support your knees. Squeeze your upper thighs to engage your quads.

  • Pull your naval in gently towards your spine.

  • Bring your shoulders up towards your ears, back, and down.

  • Bring your chin back to keep your neck in line with the rest of your spine.

  • Finally, rest your arms at your sides, and turn your palms face out towards the front of the room.
