Mountain Pose: your foundation for your practice.
Step 1: With feet hip distance apart, fan your toes wide on your mat for a base to stand on.
Step 2: Working from the ground up, lift your kneecaps to engage your quads, center your pelvis and squeeze your glutes.
Step 3: Engage your core by pulling your ribs in. Stand up tall by squeezing your shoulder blades together and slightly tucking your chin.
Step 4: Palms face forward with arms at your sides.
