Set a proper foundation for Tadasana

Tadasana is “home base” for standing poses. Dissection of the pose enables us to establish a solid foundation, and the complexities of doing so include knowledge of the four corners of the feet and ensuring that the feet are parallel to each other. If you are a yoga teacher describing the steps to setting a good foundation in tadasana can be complicated because placement of the feet parallel and describing hip distance apart often comes with misinterpretations. Jaye gives us a few pointers to figure out how to create understandable cues to ensure that the foundation is established correctly. One exercise includes marching in place where you can visualize if you naturally have a sense of what parallel feet feel like. We are entertained by the neighbor’s kitty who stopped into the garden during this instruction of tadasana. The neighbor’s cat, “Lucky” decided to stop in for the practice.
