Tree Pose:  Vrikshasana

 

 

Come, take your place in Vrikshasana, Tree Pose.

 

If you do any gardening, you know what it's like to replant ornamental grasses.  The first few days after moving them, they mope and droop, really homesick for their old soil.  And then, magically, you can see them take root and reach up towards the sun.

 

So it is with us in Vrikshasana.  It is not until we commit to sinking our roots down into the earth are we able to grow tall and reach for the sky.
