All yoga levels, from beginner to advanced, are invited to feel a deep relationship with themselves, the trees, the natural world, and yoga through the teachings within these pages. In addition to poses, this book offers an exploration of physiology, lore, art, poetry, and spirituality about trees.
Illustrations and clear instructions guide the reader into yoga poses with the trees as a partner. Centering, core strength, and 27 poses are included as aspects of a basic practice. Relationship with trees is explored through guided imagery instruction and examples, real life stories, poems, and practices such as tree branch smudging, remembering the trees of childhood, and breathing with trees.
This new way of being in relation to trees will bring gladness and soul-nourishing enjoyment to the young and the young-at-heart of all ages!
