One Pose at a Time.

One Pose at a Time



We can often under Mind 

How immensely difficult 
Vriksasana or 
The Tree 
is as a
pose.





Vrksa (supposedly) = Tree

Asana (assumingly) = Posture 
in Sanskrit.


This is the Tree Posture

For Beginners:


Stand Tall



Ground down

through 
your
feet


Root



(but 

don't 
slouch)


Stand Tall


(remember?)



Root down

While Reaching up


(Difficult To-Do: Yes



Difficult To-Do All Day: Definitely)




B&D Tips:



Let's start at our 'Foundation'



(Our feet?)



Root deep

Down


Root down

Deep


(Press into ground with four corners of feet)



Now Imagine

We're in a Vriksasana only class
Filled with many Vriksasana do-ers


(A forest sort to speak)



If We're all 

Rooting down
Within such a 
Small Space



Don't our Roots 

Eventually


Meet




Touch



Interconnect?






True:



-Root down:

To remember 
Our connection




(Our Foundation)



-Our roots

are remembered 
connections.




-Remaining 'grounded'

Remembering We're 
Connected 
Throughout 
Vriksasana:



Too Tough.






Part Two on How to Reach Up

Coming Soon.
