Yoga: The Tree Pose
Yoga is one of the best regimens you can practice to help you achieve physical balance, as well as mental and spiritual balance. Taking a class will help you stay consistent, and with the help of an instructor, you can ensure you’re doing the exercises correctly and safely.
Iyengar Yoga in particular is phenomenal for people of all ages and conditioning levels. That's because props such as blocks and ropes are used to help practitioners attain poses they might not otherwise be able to do. The outer balance you cultivate doing yoga poses helps achieve an inner harmony by quieting the mind.
Here's a pose you can try.
With both feet firmly rooted to the ground shift your weight to the left foot, bend your right knee. Reach down with your right hand and gently grab the right ankle. Draw the right foot up while maintaining a strong and balanced left leg. Place the heel as close as you can to the inner left groin.
For an added challenge, raise your hands up above your head at shoulder length apart and look toward the ceiling. Be patient and take your time when starting out, it will take time and practice but you can learn to hold this pose for minutes at a time.
