5 Best Balancing Asanas for Beginners

2 years ago | Yoga and You
Balance is not something we think much about in our daily lives, but as we age, it becomes incredibly important to have good balance to prevent falls and injuries. A strong sense of balance encourages stillness in yoga poses, as well as stillness in your mind. Improve your balance and you'll also strengthen your muscles and improve flexibility and muscular control, as well as body awareness. Here are 5 Best Balancing Asanas for Beginners.

Tadasana - Mountain Pose
Tadasana is a basic standing posture that is a great foundation for many asanas. It creates space in the spine allowing the body to work more efficiently and with more ease.

Vrikshasana - Tree Pose
Vrikshasana or tree pose is a wonderful pose that teaches balance while toning the muscles of the legs. This elegant pose is not as easy as it looks, but over time it builds tremendous inner and outer strength and a great feeling of accomplishment as you learn to balance on one leg.

Virabhadrasana III - Warrior III Pose
Virabhadrasana III or Warrior 3 Pose is an asana commemorating the exploits of the warrior Virabhadra, an incarnation of Shiva. Warrior III pose (Virabhadrasana III) is also commonly known as Airplane pose.

Ardha Baddha Padmottanasana - Half Bound Lotus Standing Forward Bend
Half Bound Lotus Standing Forward Fold is a deep hip opener and hamstring stretch that can be challenging even for those with a consistent and long-term yoga practice. It is not recommended for absolute beginners, though, as the depth of flexibility and stability required may be too demanding. In Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, it is a basic standing posture that is part of the Primary Series.

Garudasana - Eagle Pose
Eagle Pose — Garudasana (gahr-ooo-DAHS-uh-nuh) — is a standing balance pose that requires and develops focus, strength, and serenity. Using your breath and your gaze in this posture will help calm your mind and release distractions, allowing for quiet poise and stability in the pose.
