Vrikshasana is a Sanskrit word where a tree means a tree (a tree), and asana means to sit or stand. When the asana is complete, the posture is reflected in the shape of the tree, which is why it is called Vrikshasana. During the pose, the body should remain stable just as the tree stays ground. While practicing Vriksasana, our foot works like the roots of a tree and carries the weight of the whole body. This asana has health benefits in many ways.

Points to note:

Exercise Vriksasana in the morning calmly and adequately. In the morning, the brain remains calm, and asana benefits are at a peak.

Practice any proper posture and get the benefits of it. Vriksasana is practiced empty stomach, and if you want to practice this asana after a meal, eat it for about 4-6 hours before the asana so that the food is properly digested. And make the bodywork for shape.


  1. First, stand up. Both legs should stick to each other and keep the knees straight.
  2. Keep your palms on both sides of the body.
  3. Keep your left knee straight, lift the right leg with the right hand, and place it on the left knee. After this, bend your right leg slightly and keep it in the knee joint.
  4. To the best of your ability, keep the heel of your right foot upon the left thigh. Your toes should bend down.
  5. The pressure on the heel of your right foot should fall on the left thigh. After this, try to balance your body with the left leg.
  6. After the body balance is done, add your palms and fingers, and lift both hands.
  7. Both your hands should be raised in the namudra. After that, you breathe in (you breathe in) and lift your hands (slightly) above the head.
  8. Don't keep your body relaxed but firm, and don't let your body balance lose weight.
  9. Stay in this position for a while and while you take a deep breath (breath), keep your hands on your chest and return to the past.
  10. Now do this with the help of the other leg. Repeat this action over and over.
