Topic #2--"Balance" Entry

Thank you so much Mary Ann for this beautiful entry!

She says, " I thought about how this is a running theme in yoga, figuratively & literally. Vrksasana [or tree pose] is essentially a balance pose. it is a posture that embodies strength & grace >>>and also extends one's energy...wherein one foot is firmly planted in the earth and the other planted on the trunk [leg]. arms are outstretched as the head looks upward with an open heart... & all the while>>> remembering to breathe."
