Over the years, many people have realised the importance and benefits of yoga, and embraced it as a part of their daily routine. As such, it needs no retelling that the many yoga asanas have their own benefits if done with proper posture and technique.
One such yoga pose that helps enhance one’s focus and strengthen alertness is the Tree Pose or Vrikshasana. Actor Malaika Arora recently shared a post about the pose as part of #MalaikasMoveOfTheWeek series.
She shared that the asana helps with balance and concentration. The pose is a Hatha yoga variation in which one balances the body on one foot.
