Tiryak Tadasan (Swaying Palm Tree Pose)

  • Stand up straight—in an upright position—with both feet joined together and arms by your sides, i.e. Saral Tadasan.
  • Now, spread out your feet, keeping a distance of about 1.5-2 feet between each other.
  • Breathing in (Radhey), raise your arms above your head.
  • Interlock your fingers and twists the wrists so that the palms face the sky.
  • Make sure your arms remain straight.
  • Breathing out (Krishna), comfortably bend rightwards from the waist.
  • Ensure you always bend laterally, keeping the spinal cord erect.
  • Also, do not twist the head; it must be aligned with the arms.
  • Maintain the final position to your comfort.
  • Breathing in (Radhey), come to an upright position.
  • Practice on the other side.
  • Finally exhaling (Radhey), lower the arms by the thighs and relax.
  • Inhaling (Radhey), lower the right foot to the floor; return to the starting position.
  • Likewise, repeat it with the other set of arms and legs.
  • This ends one round; do up to three rounds.
  • Finally, come to Shithil Tadasan and relax.
  • On the balance
  • On always feeling the presence of “Radhey Krishna” with your breaths
  • Ek Pada Bakasan superbly tones up the leg muscles.
  • It helps increase the flexibility of the hip portion.
  • It naturally brings one’s body and mind into balance.
