Protecting bones Tree balance
To strengthen the legs and ankles and bring confident balance, start in simple strong standing. Ground your feet (see No. 372). Keeping your left leg really firm, raise the right foot a little off the ground. Lift it higher (using hands if necessary), placing the sole as far up your inner left leg as you can. Press the foot and the leg toward each other. To keep from wobbling, fix your gaze on an object or place one hand against a support. When you feel secure, stretch one or both arms overhead. The more you stretch, the easier the pose. Breathe. Come out of the pose slowly and under control and repeat the moves with the other leg.
