    Tree pose is one of my favorite poses, especially in Yiengar we bring our joined palm up above the head at the end of the pose, once fully stable. It gives a grounding and floating sensation.

    Tree pose is a pose that really reflects how I feel, usually I have a good balance, but on those moody days … I find it difficult to stay in that pose.

    Any tips so that feet don’t slide with yoga pants ?

      Sometimes yoga pants are just too slippery, but you can try to press both the leg and the foot into each other equally, that sometimes helps with sliding.

    Hello Erin,
    I am new to learning yoga. I have known certain poses from an Aunt who practiced back in the ’70s and enjoyed going through the motions with her. However, I just am now taking it seriously after doing a hot yoga class with my daughter. I realized my frustration in learning has been not understanding what each pose should look like and feel like, or how to modify it to my entry-level and still benefit from practicing yoga. Finding you has been a blessing, and thank you for doing this series of poses. I do have a small question, will you be doing one on how we should be breathing, or is there already one available? From everything I have learned the breathing is a central part of yoga. Thank you, Nadine
