Tree Pose seems like such a simple pose…but it really does take a concentrated mind to stay balanced. Even more so when holding Tree pose on the side of a mountain.

This pose is called “Ardha Chandra Chapasana” in Sanskrit. This is a very challenging variation of Half Moon pose.What makes this pose difficult to execute properly (according to yoga teachers I’ve talked to) is that you need to keep the top hip opened up instead of clutching the foot and dropping the hip. I love this image of Patrick Moore because he makes this pose look so graceful and effortless. Simply exquisite…
