Yoga is a great way to improve flexibility and strength in your body. In this article we will go over some standing poses to use in your practice.

YOGA: MOUNTAIN POSE (TADASANA)

The mountain pose is the foundation of all standing poses. It might not look like much but the mountain pose is an important starting position, resting pose and tool to improve posture which leads to many other standing poses in yoga.

 

 

STANDING FORWARD BEND (UTTANASANA)

Standing forward bend is a smooth transition from mountain pose and you will find a deep stretch in the entire back body.
