Instructions for the Tree Pose - Yoga for Martial Arts Flexibility

This page provides details for the Tree Pose. This Yoga exercise is used by martial arts students in order to work on balance. For an even greater balance workout, many martial arts schools tell their students to close their eyes while maintaining this pose. Balance exercises are often taught to younger martial arts students in order to help them learn how to accurately throw a kick from different positions, to avoid being off-balance during sparring, to avoid stumbling during a kata or form, etc.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional martial arts stretches targeting other areas of the body, please visit the main Martial Arts Stretches or Yoga for Martial Arts sections.
