The Standing Mountain Pose, Tadasana, is often confused with Parvatasana, the grounded mountain. Tadasana is one of the best yoga asanas but it’s not as simple as it first appears. Practicing this yoga asana regularly every morning gives a good massage to our hands, back, spine and the whole body. This is the most recommended asana for increasing height as well.
- Stand with your feet together or hip-width apart. Ground down through the four corners of your feet.
- Roll your shoulders away from your ears, draw your shoulder blades down your back, and lift the crown of your head.
- Engage your thighs, draw your belly button in, and lengthen up through the spine.
- Turn your palms facing the front of the room. Relax your jaw and unfurrow your brow. Breathe easy.
- Start in Mountain Pose. As you inhale, raise your arms, spread your fingers, and reach up through your fingertips. As you exhale, sit back and down as if sitting into a chair.
- Shift your weight toward the heels and lengthen up through the spine. As you inhale, lift and lengthen through your arms. As you exhale, sit deeper into the pose.
