Description:
Tadasana <!--(pronounced tah-DAH-sah-nah) (; IAST: Tāḍāsana) or Mountain Pose is an asana.

Etymology

The name comes from the Sanskrit words tada meaning "mountain" and asana (आसन) meaning "posture" or "seat".

Description

It is a very basic standing posture with feet together and hands at the sides of the body. Yoga practitioners consider it a pose that promotes confidence and happiness as well as improving posture and creating space within the body. This creating space within the body may allow internal organs to work more efficiently thus improving respiration, digestion and elimination. The pose strengthens the abdomen and the legs. It may help relieve sciatica and reduce flat feet. Poses that help prepare for Tadasana include Adho Mukha Svanasana and Uttanasana. Although Tadasana is a very basic pose it is the basis for many standing poses. Urdhva Hastasana is a very similar pose with the hands raised above the head.

Variations

Supta Tadasana (Reclined Mountain Pose)
