Standing yoga poses are great for posture correction, balance improvement, and other therapeutic benefits. Performing standing poses regularly enhances blood circulation, particularly in the head and legs, which helps reduce the risk of developing conditions such as cervical pain, vein thrombosis, hyperextended knee, asthma, runner knee, heart attack, anxiety and cardiac arrest.
Some poses strengthen the Achilles tendon, hamstring, and hip flexor, so they are a good treatment for athletes, dancers, seniors, kids, and people with regular desk jobs. However, standing yoga poses can be quite challenging. They require leg strength, full-body flexibility, and the ability to balance oneself with one leg while moving gracefully between poses.
