Samasthiti (Equal Standing) | Yoga Fundamentals


Samasthiti is the foundation of many yoga poses. At first glance, this pose may seem easy, but don't be deceived, it can be challenging to bring full attention and concentration to your body for more than 5 breaths. Try closing your eyes to focus on evenly distributing your weight and slowing down your breathing.


How to:

  1. Stand upright and distribute your weight equally with both feet together.

  2. Bring your toes together, heels slightly apart.

  3. Ground into all four corners of your feet. Imagine roots growing out of your feet into the ground.

  4. Lift your kneecaps and engage your quadriceps and hamstrings
