The clue is in the name, it wouldn’t be called a Mountain Pose (or ‘Tadasana’) if it didn’t make you grounded, balanced and calm like the almighty backcountry badass you are.
The first place to start your journey is by standing with your feet together and your arms at your sides. Feel your weight evenly across your feet and press your big toes together.
Focus on tucking your tail bone under and stand up tall, engaging your core to protect you lower back. Close your eyes, and inhale and exhale slowly.
If you want to further the pose, raise your arms into the air like so.
It’s as simple as that. Remember this feeling. It will give your core strength during your next powder session.
