The first poses beginners typically learn in Iyengar Yoga are Tadasana (mountain pose) and Vrksasana (tree pose). We achieve steadiness and firmness in Tadasana and we want to keep that stability in Vrksasana. Due to being a one legged standing pose Vrksasana offers a balance challenge. Both poses are narrow standing poses and often taught early in Iyengar progressions since most people are accustomed to standing with the feet close together. Tree pose can be difficult for those with tightness in the hip and inner groins. Using the wall is an excellent way to explore these poses.
