Standing Yoga Pose Collection

Standing is something we do everyday but often don’t think much about. Concentrating on our posture and focusing on our bodies’ strength and alignment is integral to the yoga practice. Interestingly enough, most names for standing poses project strength such as mountain, volcano, and warrior. Standing poses literally teach us to feel and be grounded. They promote a sense of well being by calming our nervous systems hence brightening our moods.”
