Tadasana

In Sanskrit, tada means ‘palm tree’. In this posture, the final position is straight and erect and resembles the palm tree. This asana improves height and makes your spine flexible. It also helps in removing Visceroptosis and pain in the backbone. But, if you have complaints of reeling sensation you are not advised to practice it.

How to practice:

  • Stand erect, put your legs together, and keep your hands by the side of the thighs. Gaze in front.
  • Raise your hands straight in front up to arms. Keep palms facing each other.
  • Bring your hands up straight towards the sky with fingers pointing upward.
  • Now, slowly raise your heels and stand on your toes. Raise your heels as much as you can. Stretch your body up as much as possible.
  • While returning to original position, bring your heels on the ground first.
  • Now slowly bring down your hands also.
