Also known as Vrksasana, this exercise is again beneficial to capoeiristas in that it helps improve focus, strengthens the ankle muscles, calves, inner thigh and groin muscles.

Move Background

Tree Pose strengthens your legs and core while opening your hips and stretching your inner thighs and groin muscles.

Step by step guide

  • Take a moment to feel both your feet root into the floor with your weight distributed equally on all four corners of each foot.
  • 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.
  • Bend your left knee and bring the sole of your left foot high onto your inner right thigh.
  • Press your foot into your thigh and your thigh back into your foot with equal pressure.
  • This will help you keep both hips squared toward the front so your right hip doesn't jut out.
  • Take 5 to 10 breaths, then lower your left foot to the floor and do the other side.
