Description:
We all want to stand strong in our lives, and standing poses can help us find that strength both on and off the mat. On the physical level, standing poses bring greater flexibility and strength to your legs to open your hips and free your back. But standing poses also go beyond the surface level, to strengthen the nervous system and stabilize our emotions, bringing clarity to the mind. These fundamental poses form the foundation for our progress in our yoga practice and in everything else we do, developing our confidence, balance, and mind-body connection. Enjoy this essential practice!
