The Palm Tree Pose – Talasana –

[flashvideo file= image= stretching=fill /]


This asana is also referred to as the ‘tree pose’ (or ‘palm-tree pose’) because in the Sanskrit language, tala means “palmyra.” or “palm tree.”

Effects and Benefits

This is a great practice for those who spend long hours sitting or working in front of a computer, as it stretches and lengthens all of the long muscles of the body while also opening the spinal, shoulder and hip joints.

Therefore, much body tension can be relieved by this position, while at the same time its practice can help to re-establish proper body posture…

*Remember… Yoga is much more than a group of physical practices.
