Vrksasana or Tree Pose in Yoga is one of my favorite postures- and can also be quite challenging. Finding balance standing on one leg arms up and open, we sway, try not to flail, and often stumble.
When our minds are calm and relaxed it can seem effortless, but with chattering or “monkey mind” it can be much more difficult. And that, is when we need it most.
So I plant myself in front of a window and look out at the trees who are stark and still beautiful this time of year and remember to plant my roots and lift my heart.
