The Sanskrit word tada (pronounced tah-dah) actually means "palm tree"; hence, this exercise is also called the palm tree posture.
1. Stand tall but relaxed with your feet at hip width.
Your arms are at your sides with your palms turned toward the sides of the legs.
2. Visualize a vertical line connecting the hole in your ear, your shoulder joint, and the sides of your hip, knee, and ankle.
3. Look straight ahead with your eyes open or closed, as Figure 15-16d illustrates.
