Vrksasana is among the first poses you will practice as a yogi, and it’s one of those that give big satisfaction from the beginning. It’s a classic, looks pretty and never too boring.

All of them though are characterised by the concept of rootedness, of connection to the ground and, in a wider sense, to the Earth.
