Pose of the Month: Christmas Tree


Tree pose is a lovely meditation which integrates our body, mind and breath. It implores the qualities of mercy, generosity, flexibility, tolerance, strength, focus, endurance, balance and grace which helps an individual achieve overall growth in his or her life. The standing leg, representing a tree trunk, connects us to Mother Earth and offers a sense of grounding and stability. The arms, representing the branches, signify growth, change and freedom of expression.

Tree pose is entered from Tadasana (Mountain Pose.) The most common variation has one knee bent and the foot of that leg placed on the inner thigh of the standing leg; alternatively, the bent leg may be placed in half lotus position. The hands are held above the head, either pointed directly upwards and unclasped, or clasped together in Anjali Mudra (Prayer.)

Try Tree Pose the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed and need grounding, inner strength, and peace of mind.
