Damian asks: My Tree Pose is getting better day by day – but how do I keep my leg on my thigh in the posture without slipping, so that I can transition to Toe Stand? Does it just take time? Any posture suggestions for a beginner would be great!
Bikram Yoga Vancouver says: Thanks for the question, Damian! We’re sure that a lot of hot yoga beginners wonder about this one. The key is to focus on pushing your hips forward and bringing your knee back, in order to keep your foot on your thigh. As for Toe Stand, just try to sit down on your heel in each and every class. The more repetition you do, the sooner you will improve. You can also practise a couple of sets of this Bikram Yoga posture after class and you will see quicker results.
