Mountain (Tadasana)

A Pitta-Pacifying Yoga Pose
Mountain Pose

Stand with your feet hip distance apart. Arms rest alongside your body as you extend the fingers towards the floor. Drop the shoulders and lift the heart. Make sure 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 as you lengthen your tailbone.

Pitta Focus:

Focus on the internal gaze rather than the external.

Benefits:

Increases focus, concentration, and balance.
