Finding Your Focus

Tree Pose

Tree Pose – Vrksasana

What better time to celebrate my favorite pose than during my favorite time of year?  I LOVE Tree Pose.

Visualization is an important part of yoga.  Visualizing the pose as it will be… even if you aren’t quite there yet, seeing it in your mind’s eye how it will become as you advance in your practice.

When you are in Tree Pose, no matter what stage you are at in your practice, you can visualize yourself as any tree.  Today I might be a mighty oak… strong, proud and sturdy.  Or perhaps my balance is a bit challenged and today I resemble a palm tree, swaying in the tropical breeze.  No matter what your challenge, you are always a tree… beautiful, strong and powerful….. grounded in the earth and still reaching for the sun.

I know, I know… I’ve already blogged about Tree…. check out the article on Drishti and finding your focus.
