We've all heard from yoga teachers to NEVER put your lifted foot on the knee of your standing leg, but can you safely put your foot on your knee in tree pose without catastrophe?!? Short answer is... probably. Fellow yoga teacher, Kellyn, recently asked for my thoughts on an article about this Vrksasana (Tree Pose) topic.
It's one thing to be able to control your core while holding a yoga pose, but as you grow and progress in your practice, you might be ready for a bigger challenge. Here's a little activity that I call inversion walking to take you to the next level of core control. It's a lot harder to keep your core stable when the things attached to it (like your legs) are moving all around. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
