The Eagle in the Tree Sequence
In this wonderful yoga asana sequence we go from the grounded energy of the warriors, and, like spring flowers, draw our strength up from the earth. We then raise our awareness up into Vrksasana, the tree pose - bringing balance and focus and new growth. We then ‘lift off’ from tree into flight of the eagle pose, Garudasana.
Focus on the beautiful energy of spring by inviting colour and vitality into your body, heart and mind. Enjoy a wonderful feeling of fullness and abundance as you tune into the incredible potential that comes with the blossoming of spring. Feel supported by the energy of the earth, providing you with nourishment and soothing your whole being. Take time to simply rest in the beauty and tranquility of spring.
