Stand in Tadasana for the courage to change and the power to be confident

October 4, 2017


Stand tall in Tadasana, this is what you hear when you join a yoga class. The teacher then goes on to explain the physical benefits of this pose which include but are not limited to these benefits, Improves posture, strengthens thighs, knees, and ankles
Firms abdomen and buttocks, relieves sciatic and reduces flat feet. But the true power of this pose is mental. When you can gather the power of a physical pose infused with the mental power of affirmations you can create lasting positive change in your life.  Stand in Tadasana for the courage to change and the power to be confident.

This pose can allow you to gain courage create change in your life to improve your life circumstance by giving you the power to be confident in all that you do. This is done when you master the use of this pose in conjunction with the use of your most powerful affirmations after reciting your correctly phrased and constructed goal. Tadasana is a pose that can increase your mental focus and create alertness. The is the breeding ground for those positive feelings that can allow you to create powerful change in your mind, creating an openness and powerful feeling of being in control.

Standing tall in tadasana is critical for the empowerment of your mind. You see what happens many times when we are using our affirmations is that what we are telling ourselves does not match how we are feeling. Neuro-Linguistic Programming
Tells us that our body language even to ourselves is a critical factor when we want to empower positive change in our life.

When you begin to use the pose with your affirmations you can create a powerful internal change, which has otherwise escaped you. To do this pose correctly you must: Stand up straight with both feet at hip-width. Turn your heels a little outward and let your weight rest on your toes that are slightly pointing inward. Your arms hang downwards along the side of your body and the palm of your hands point towards your body, with thumbs pointing forward. Now make the back of your pelvis move away from your lower back. Slightly look upward with your chin slightly pointed upward. Draw your belly into your lower back, and open your chest. The shoulders feel broad and are relaxed.
Your breathing is deep and relaxed. Take two deep breaths, and then begin your chant of affirmations. Continue this chant in this position for about three minutes, relax and begin again with a new affirmation. Stand in Tadasana for the courage to change and the power to be confident.

Do this ritual for thirty days and see your confidence build, a world of opportunities open up for you. Be aware that when you do this consistently and with dedication and determination your life may begin to show signs of improvement within 7 days.

I always tell my clients, not to do this unless they are truly ready for the change they will affect quickly. Another way to make this change happen even more powerfully and quickly is by doing Tadasana affirmation rescue technique in nature, in a place that is quiet and beautiful, in this way you will ensure that your affirmations will become your new internal dialogue even deeper, quicker and lasting. Be prepared for your life to change.

Have the courage to Stand in tall in Tadasana for the power to be confident.

Yours in Health and Wealth.

  1. It is hard to me start working in my new goals so, definetly I need to practice Tadasana. I am happy with my life but I need to do some changes. Since I practice the yoga asanas my life have been changes but better since I have been studying the shakras and yamas/niyamas. I am more happy since I started my yoga journal. Namaste

  2. Aprigraha showed me to let things go, not be greedy and give without expecting anything in return. There is more to than just giving materialistic things. Love, compassion, happiness, and support is what is more valuable. Material things don’t go with our soul, they get left behind and brake. I love the Tadasana pose however, my favorite pose is Shavasana since my spine feels very comfortable and I can relax to think about my desires and goals. Aprigraha is a useful tool that is shaping my life and others as well.

  3. I have applied Aprigrapha in my life. By letting go of something old from the past, and buying something new. Sold all my old furniture, and bought all new furniture for our new place. A new start, a new beginning, and starting a new chapter in our lives.

  4. I really responded to the blog post. I have definitely felt the physical benefits of Tadasana since starting yoga this semester. I have also felt the mental benefits as well. I like to stand tall in tadasana as I go into my morning affirmations. I feel as though it gives the affirmations a confidance & helps to give them strength.

  5. A parigraha I have tried it in my personal life. And it is quite hard to actually focus. For me personally has been hard to let go of things because to get attached easily. But i have tried to simply let things be its way and not get to me. By trying the parigraha and to keep improving in it

  6. I believe it’s easy to tell someone to just “stand in tadasana” but means so much more to be standing in tadasana as well as mentally being present. Recently, (because of homework assigned) when I wake and before I sleep, I will repeat an affirmation that was given to our class. When I first started, I took it literally and would repeat the affirmation while in bed. However, more recently I’ve fallen in love with this little ritual/kick off start to day. Now, I get myself out of bed, make my cup of coffee, stand tall in tadasana on balcony, repeat in head or whisper amongst myself the affirmation. And boy oh boy, have I seen a difference in my behavior, emotions, energy and actions throughout the rest of the day, and when I awake! I believe repeating a positive affirmation, whilst standing nice and strong helps your body really start to feel and become the affirmation. Letting it slowly sink and take control of the body.

  7. The way I have applied Apligraha is by learning to let go of a past situation that affected me. I have done this by looking at my life a realizing all that I have and feeling grateful for it.Versus feeling like I never have enough or focusing on what I don’t have. I have also practiced tadasuna and have noticed how I internally and externally feel so much more energized and positive.

  8. I agree that yoga can be life changing if you allow it! I know personally it has changed mine in more ways than one. As your “standing tall in tadasana” and repeating your affirmations, you should have no space in your being for anything else. While you are there in tadasana it is easy to let go of any attachments, like aparigraha tells us too. This practice makes it easier let go when we are off of the mat as well.

  9. I’m going to be completely honest with you and say that I had very low expectations in this class thinking that it was going to be just your average yoga class. But then I met you Professor. I was going to drop the class right away and after the first week I felt amazing. I have a better sense of my body both physically and mentally. Just tother day I let my humanness come out and I swear I felt so horrible. I can feel my energy just hit me like a ton of bricks. Standing tall in tadasana everyday and saying affirmations as part of my daily routine has changed me completely. My mind, body and soul is changing. I am starting to feel happy about myself as well. I am always talking about my yoga practice and I’m probably annoying everyone I talk to about it but hey I love it. Thank you Marti Angel for giving me the opportunity to learn and change through yoga and powerful chakras. I am now and always standing tall.

  10. Standing in tadasana is liberating to me. Especially those who tend to not walk or stand with a good posture (like myself) can feel the difference immediately. The mental aspect of tadasana really stands out to me, and affirmations seem to have more substance in tadasana compared to sitting in meditation. I can’t wait to try tadasana on the beach with my toes in the sand- I can only imagine how grounded it would make me feel.

  11. Standing tall in Tadasana definitely spreads confidence throughout my body and gives me the ability to seperate from negative thoughts to thoughts that serve me and to focus on my self within that moment. I am currently applying Aprigraha to my life by getting rid of unnecessary ties whether it be with old things around the house or relationships with others. So far it has been working and I have been noticing small changes when it comes to achieving small steps towards some of my short term goals by allowing me to focus on them without distractions. I am hoping aprigraha will be able to bring me out of the past in order to work towards my future.

  12. When someones says stand in Tadasana to me, I can only picture myself standing tall and clearing my mind. This has given me a chance to clear my thoughts of any negative emotions I have when walking into class so I can enjoy the rest of the session without having to feel hate. I taught this to my mother who is usually stressed out after work and she loves it! Unfortunately she could not do other exercises that we have done in class.In short, we both enjoy the benefits of tadasana as it gives us the strength to move forward in life.

  13. I can tell from experience that doing tadasana in class can be very relaxing and grounding. The first I did it, i didn’t feel much of a difference but when done right it can really help you relax. So when I did it the next couple of times I didn’t feel a big change but as I really started to do it correctly, it felt really good letting all that tension and stress leave your body.

  14. I feel like yoga has in fact improved my mental state of mind because I am starting to become confident in the actions I take. I’m no longer second guessing what I do. This post has made me realize how far I’ve come since I’ve started learning yoga. I like to stand tall in Tadasana when I do yoga because it makes me feel relaxed and at ease. Yoga has taught me so much so far and I can’t wait to learn more great things!

  15. Okay so this is my fifth time trying to post a comment since Sunday, but it is never on here. Standing tall in tadasana is something that I now do within my morning routine. Ever since the first week of going to yoga practice I found that little by little my life has been changing. To be honest with you I have never thought that yoga had more to offer then movement. It is tackling me mentally, spiritually, and psychically. When I say spiritually I mean by bringing me closer to what I believe in. I can’t wait to see and feel the end result of my small changes throughout my time in this yoga practice. I thank you for helping me become a better person. I already love who I am. And I am and will always stand tall in tadasana.

  16. Those were the first words that I learned and memorized after our first yoga practice! I didn’t know that it have so many benefits, next time I am going to stand taller in Tadasana! Our mind is really powerful, and Tadasana affirmations too!

  17. Standing tall in Tadasana is the perfect example of changing your energy to better help your thoughts and overall your growth. I personally am struggling with continuously standing tall in tadasana, mainly because I feel I haven’t quite mastered how to balance things, as well as completely detaching enough to completely focus on myself and be in the present time. I find myself some mornings so caught up my job and trying to do a million things at once throughout the day that I forget to relax, and even notice my own breathing. But slowly but surely, I have been working on trying to take a step back, stay grounded, remember affirmations, and truly being aware. Because the only way to improve is to fully be in the moment with an open heart, ears and positive mind set and with that day by day still I can feel my energy vibrating different and my self confidence and not to mention self love (which both things I normally struggle with) increasing.

  18. When I first joined this class I was under the impression we’ simply be hitting the mat for about an hour each class period. I was pleasantly surprised as it’s been so much more than that. Every morning when I speak my affirmations I set a more positive and light tone to my day ahead. Standing in Tadasana isn’t just a pose but aligns the body and mind to more awareness and openness in my opinion. With Aparigrapha I have tried to analyze where my thoughts and feelings are coming from. Some of them do not serve me and the truth I want to live, so I am working on letting them go. I am grateful for this class and this experience that has me soul searching.

  19. I have not been standing correctly in tadasana…. Though I do believe since starting Yoga this semester I have gained so much positivity. Through out my daily life I reflect on what I’ve learned so far & applied it to my everyday situations. Now after learning this I will work on standing correctly & try to continue to grow positively.

  20. Tadasana, will increase my confidence which I believe I need. everytime I practice I will try to remember some of the benefits like good posture, firms abdomen, relives sciatic. But most important mental focus.
    Thanks Ms.Marti I love yoga class.!!

  21. I’m am starting my journey of yoga at the age of 18. As a teenager there are constant emotions going on within me, but yoga has altered my view on many things. Such as my inner thoughts, how I think of myself and my body, which has lead me to be open minded. Tasadana especially has shown me to welcome in thing with open arms and be accepting of other people, nature, and god.

  22. I’m so glad Tadadana is one of our first poses. It helps me greatly to stand tall, clear my mind of all distractions and focus on the moment and frankly a “ME” time. I can then truly be enriched in my transformation. When I leave this class I feel mental rejuvenation in the sense that my thinking is clear, I have more energy and not only did I release good endorphins , I have positive vibes to open my eyes, heart and soul and view the outside world differently. It’s as if this is a therapy class – you are changing yourself for the better and learn invaluable tools to live our lives in clarity, balance and transparency. Thank you

  23. In my opinion tadasana is all about creating positive change which is what life is about. When we stand tall in tadasana we are confident because we have our chest up, heart open, and bent knees. We need to transfer this postures energy into our minds, which creates courage, confidence, and control.Courage and confidence in everything we do is essential in order for us too live a happy and positive life. It gives us the motivation and energy that nobody will. Control in our lives helps us achieve our goals, it makes us have a clear vision of our dreams we need too keep on chasing. In my opinion body language can say a lot about a person and tadasana is the perfect posture on how we should approach life and conduct our body language. We need too approach life with our heart open, chest up full of courage and confidence all in control.

  24. “You see what happens many times when we are using our affirmations is that what we are telling ourselves does not match how we are feeling” , we need to be congruent with our body and mind. It is very interesting how standing tall in Tsadasana can test our courage and how by doing this pose everyday the confidence and power that is hidden inside me starts to diffuse and reflect in my life.

  25. I feel like tadasana is very beneficial for us. Whether it is physically or mentally. I am lacking in the use of tadasana and applying it in my own life. I wish that with this yoga class i am currently taking, i can find a way to make this type of change in my life

  26. I appreciate the way that this post helps me to make sense of the potential of a certain stance with the right words spoken. I would love doing this every day that I am not doing Yoga. After a couple of weeks, things are looking up.

  27. Cool. I will try it because I want to build the courage to face new subjects that are mandatory to achieve my goal.

  28. I do about 15 minutes of meditation in the morning but usually sitting position, I will incorporate the tadasana pose as part of my morning meditation and add the affirmations as suggested in this article. I shall stand tall in tadasana and be confident! Namaste.

  29. I definitely find that sometimes it is difficult to look past everything going on in your head to mentally achieve a pose. I have found tadasana does allow me to feel more empowered and be able to align my mind and my body to become ready to practice yoga and self meditation. The connection that is felt when standing in this pose and affirming yourself is one that I don’t think could be achieved without the willingness and openness to stand tall in tadasana.

  30. It’s so helpful for me to learn how to control the mind with yoga, the poses and the breathing help me to control anxiety and depression

  31. I honestly never really thought about the mental aspect of yoga. But since practicing it recently it’s really helped me. Tadasana has really help me be more confidence and courage. Your body language rally changes and makes you more open and apporable.

  32. Standing tall in Tadasana seems very peaceful and rejuvinating, especially to those who always feel incomplete and confused about what they want in life. It helps with opening the mind and heart, which a lot of us, including myself, needs to learn to do.

  33. Tadasana – stand tall:
    I believe that there are 2 things and feelings when in this stance going on at same time and going flowing both ways in and out like , so Tadasana done in a quiet place helps us connect inner spirit with universal energy. Also since this position can help us relax that can maybe bring in confidence too.

  34. Every since being introduced to tadasana I’ve felt as if I’ve opened up a door to self confidence and awareness. I’ve noticed within these past couple of weeks my attitude and perspective has changed for the better. I love tadasana and how empowering it feels once your mind, body and spirit are in sync.

  35. I feel that yoga has made me open my eyes and helped me in many new ways, such as improved my mental state of mind. I think that tadasana is all about making new chances to your life new positive changes and helps with confidence. Also I feel that standing in tadasana helps clear the mind, I can stand tall and proud and begin getting ready.

  36. I’ve done Tadasana in my yoga class and at first I was lost. Now after a couple classes I’ve found how tadasana reflects on your personal life, it’s a pose that represents how well you know yourself and how strong your beliefs are. I really enjoy this class and I’m learning more and more about my inner self and that’s what I believe this post is for. 🙂

  37. Being in yoga for the first time has definitely boosted my confidence in public. During my first week of yoga I was focused on how I looked and if I were doing all the poses right. Tadasna sounds as if it will make me more comfortable being who I am. I love yoga and all it is teaching me about myself.

  38. Something that I had struggled with is giving myself affirmations. There is always this constant voice that visits me every so often that challenges me into my self doubt. And while in my mind I blamed everything/everyone else for what is wrong I never did anything my self to change to outcome. Something I always do is start, but never finished completely. Slowly I have been putting myself in a different state of mind and some thing that has helped me is Yoga. Tadasana is really a great pose for me and the mental transition in my life. Much like how this article mentions tadasana helps one physically,yet has a depper affect on he mind. Slowly over the past few week I have been noticing that the negative voice visit me less and make me feel more comfortable in by own skin and appreciate everyone for their differences than judging them negatively. Tadasana is one of the most magical experiences on earth…and just lie that Tada simple but powerful.

  39. I completely agree I do believe that standing in Tsadasana does help me start my day I do see that with this pose help me think positive and have a positive attitude the whole day .

  40. I truly believe that Yoga can change your body and mind in so many aspects. Time ago I was not capable to take a yoga class before because I thought that It would be so difficult. Now I regret that decision because it is amazing how standing tall in Tadasama can be so beneficial for your body and mental health.

    I know the blog talks about the post and how it’s supposed to strengthen the mind and boost confidence levels, but personally, it’s very hard for my confidence about myself to improve; that’s probably me being pessimistic. I’m kind of hesitant to try this pose, because I’m kind of weary of the results due to the fact that I’m not ready for the changes to come. Although I’ll keep an open mind about it.

  42. Well after reading the benefits of tadasana, I will add it to my morning mediation ritual along with positive affirmations. Since I began taking yoga classes I have noticed less stress in my life and I am not as impatient with others as I used to be. So Tadasana, I will stand tall as you become my new friend. Namaste!

  43. I remember when I start yoga clases, was difficult to me satay in tadasana pose because my mind is always thinking in thing outside of this room. But now, two three weeks letter, I feel more confident to practice tadasana because I can stay in this pose and leave all my worries outside of this room and I can focus in the benefits that this pose can give to my body and mind. Also I can think more positively every day. Thank you coach Marti to encourage me to another level of Yoga.

  44. honestly, I want to start making changes in my life to better myself. I feel like standing tall tadasana would be a great way to start. I’m on a journey and have an open mined. I’m ready to try new things and I’m excited to see where yoga will take me!

  45. Tadasana creates a feeling of relief in every fiber of your body. The feeling of difference occurs immediately on your back and legs. Helps relieve stress in the back and make you feel less tense. By grounding your toes to the floor you connect to your inner sense. I Tadasana anytime I can.

  46. What I have noticed ever since starting this journey through the yoga way is to open yourself up to whatever life throws at you. When standing in tadasana, I feel a strong sense of ease. Therefore, the pose of standing in tadasana prepares you’re mind to stay at ease as you face the world.

  47. Wow! Aprigrapha has played a major part in my life with applying through having a positive mindset and letting go of all the bad things of the past. I need to continue reminding myself that the things in the past don’t make my future, so I got to let it go and learn from it. It’s increbile. About my present right now will affect my future if I don’t take action now.

  48. At first tadasana to me was just a simple pose that I would have to do in class, but now I know that there is more to it than what it looks like. Doing the tadasana pose helps me be relaxed and feel confident throughout the rest of the day, it helps my mental state. I am glad I have chosen to take this class and excited to have you as a teacher.

  49. Yoga has made me change favorably, the reason of this is that recently my grandfather passed away, and these weeks was really difficult for me. Lately, I didn’t feel it that positive attitude on me, and I had no initiative in my life; I lost the confidence that I had in myself, in a few words, I gave up easily. But since I started practicing yoga again, just practicing the tadasana pose has helped me to feel better about myself, to have more confidence, and to be more positive in what I do, because tadasana pose has made me change my mentality and now I have positive thoughts, which will make me see my life in a better way. Now, I have another perspective, which will make me fight even harder in my challenges of life.

  50. By standing tall in tadasana I not only have slowly came out of my shy bubble but ive also become more confident in myself. Before I would have awful posture & pains in my back making me feel tired & like I just want to go home and take a nap , but every since I’ve taken this class my life has improved immensely . Not only has standing tall in tadasana brought me the physical benefits of just feeling so much better & relieved, but also the mental ability to have a better grasp on my emotions & not let the critical voices take the best of me.
    – Thank you so much professor for having me join your class again c: ♡ I’ve loved this class even at my worst moments and you’ve given so much wisdom I’d like to give back to society c: can’t wait to learn more this semester !

  51. I think it’s important to remember mental fortitude comes before a strong body. To train a strong body, you need a strong mind. I have been feeling the positive effects of this post and I enjoy taking it all in as I prepare for the day of yoga and the day in general. I let my body yield to whatever is necessary and feel more full and with saturation in general.

  52. Reading this just reminded me of all the goals I have that I have not been able to meet because of fear; specifically fear of uncertainty. I have been wanting to quit my job now for quite some time because they do not care about the students who can not be at work on certain days because of school. There has been multiple occasions where I want to leave but the fear of not being reliable , of having people mad at me, of not being what everyone needs me to be, and of the uncertainty of not being able to find a new job has always kept me from leaving. In class and on my own I can not wait to meditate on my goals standing tall in tadasana and gain the confidence and assurance that I am intelligent and caring enough to achieve this goal in the right way and as soon as possible. Standing in Tadasana has already helped me with my balance wich was my original goal for joining yoga but the class has given to me so much more. I think kinder things about myself and take the time to enjoy and be thankful for my life even though I used to be so anxious all the time.

  53. Standing tall in Tadasana is one of the more beneficial poses for me. It allows me to relax and gain confidence. At first I was uncomfortable of the idea of taking a yoga class but at we stood in Tadasana for the first time and our teacher really let us get comfortable in that position before doing anything else gave me the chance to be confident that it was okay to be a beginner and it gave me the assurance that I could put aside the negative thoughts of being judged and instead focus on all the benefits I want to get out of this class.

  54. Tsadasana it’s something that I should dominate completely in order to start my new life! I thought that yoga was only physical exercises, I also knew that it was connected to the mind but I never imagined that I was going to start a new path by taking this yoga class. Now, my mind is more aware.

  55. I’m new to yoga. I never feel the need to be connected to nature, because I was. But I dont know at what point did I lose my connection and my internal peace and is urgent for me to find the way to reconnect. So I will learn how to be stand in Tadasana to reach my goal.
