Find Balance with These 3 Beginner Yoga Poses

Think tree pose is a little too advanced? Worry not! These poses from the Yoga Fundamentals program focus on bringing more awareness to your feet  the first lesson in balance. “Your feet are designed to articulate movement in all kinds of ways, but we spend so much time in shoes that we limit their range of motion,” Kiley says. Aim to hold each of the following poses for three to five breaths.

Sole Stretch

Balance starts on the soles of your feet, and this pose is a great way to enhance the extension of your toes while stretching the plantar fascia. “By stretching and awakening your soles, you’re going to improve balance and agility as you walk, run and dance,” Kiley says.
How to: Get into tabletop position on your hands and knees (a). Tuck your toes under and walk your hands back towards your heels. Push your fingertips into the floor to lift your knees off the mat (b). Place two yoga blocks under your knees and sit upright on your heels (c). If this feels uncomfortable on your knees, sit on your heels and keep your fingertips tented to the floor in front of you (d).
