Yoga Asanas For Stress Relief - Tadasana Samasthithi - Steady Mountain Pose



    The sternum, which is the location of the anahata or "heart" chakra, is lifted in this posture, which is the beginning point of all standing asanas. 


    • This reduces tension and improves self-confidence, while the final pose's perfect balance enhances attentiveness. 
    • Tadasana means "mountain posture" in Sanskrit, while samasthithi means "upright and stable condition." 



    BENEFITS


    • Improves improper posture 

    • Strengthens knee joints 

    • Revitalizes the feet and corrects flat feet 

    • Reduces sciatic pain 

    • Prevents haemorrhoids 

    • Improves bladder control 



    PRECAUTIONS


    If you experience stress-related headaches, a migraine, eye strain, low blood pressure, osteoarthritis of the knees, bulimia, diarrhoea, sleeplessness, or leukorrhoea, do not practice this asana. 

    • If you're having trouble keeping your balance, try doing this asana with your feet approximately 25cm (10in) apart. 



    PROPS - A WALL 


    Any even surfaced wall can be used to assist you in properly aligning your body. 

    • It also makes posture modifications simpler and provides the final stance more solidity. 




    INSTRUCTIONS


    1 Stand on a smooth, flat surface with your bare feet.

    • Keep your toes close together and your heels against the wall. 
    • It may be simpler for beginners to maintain their feet 5cm (2in) apart. 

    2 Stretch your arms out to the sides, palms towards your thighs and fingers pointing to the ground.

    • Stretch your neck upward while maintaining a soft and passive muscular tone. 

    3 Distribute your weight equally between your toes and heels, as well as the inner and outer borders of your feet.

    • Close the back of each knee and tighten the kneecaps.
    • Turn your thighs in front of you.
    • Tighten the muscles in your buttocks.
    • Lift your chest and pull in your lower abdomen. 

    4 Keep your head up and your gaze fixed on the road ahead.

    • Breathe evenly and mindfully.
    • Feel the rush of energy as you experience your body and mind as a unified entity.
    • Hold the position for 30–60 seconds.
