See the instructions below from for how to do the Lizard pose.

It's hard to overstate the importance of trees. Their debut more than 300 million years ago was a turning point for Earth, helping transform its surface into a bustling utopia for land animals. Trees have fed, housed and otherwise nurtured countless creatures over time — including our own arboreal ancestors.

Come to stand in Mountain Pose with your hands in Anjali mudra at your heart center. 

  1. Take a moment to feel both your feet root into the floor with your weight distributed equally on all four corners of each foot.

  2. Begin to shift your weight into your right foot, lifting your left foot off the floor. Keep your right leg straight but don't lock the knee.

  3. Bend your left knee and bring the sole of your left foot high onto your inner right thigh. 

  4. Press your foot into your thigh and your thigh back into your foot with equal pressure. This will help you keep hips squared toward the front so your right hip doesn't jut out.

  5. Focus your gaze on something that doesn't move to help you keep your balance.

  6. Take 5 to 10 breaths, then lower your left foot to the floor and do the other side.
