Ayurveda Pitta Pacifying Yoga: Mountain Pose | Banyan Botanicals

Mountain (Tadasana)

A Pitta Pacifying Yoga Pose

Mountain Pose

Stand with your feet hip distance apart. Arms rest along side your body as you extend the fingers towards the floor. Drop the shoulders and lift the heart. Make sure that the floating ribs are not sticking out. Let the chin tilt slightly towards the chest to lengthen the neck. Reach the crown of the head up and ground down through the feet. Press through the big toe and outer legs. Internally rotate the femurs to give the sacrum space. Lengthen your tailbone.

Pitta Focus:

Avoid sticking the ribs out, bring them back into your body. Lengthen the back of the neck by lowering the chin and slightly drawing it in. Focus on the internal gaze rather than the external.

Benefits:

Increases focus, concentration and balance.
