Pose of the EARTH Week is TREE POSE!
We’re celebrating our beautiful planet this week by revisiting Tree Pose. We love this pose because it builds strength and we always have a blast practicing it in class but it’s also named after some very important things us and Earth need to survive — trees! They create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for birds and other animals.
FUN FACT: One large tree can supply enough oxygen for four people!
Step 1. Stand up tall like a mountain with your hands together at your heart
Step 2. Raise your right foot to either your ankle, outer shin or inner left thigh
Step 3. Straighten your arms up over your head and sway them in the wind like branches
Step 4. Try to balance as long as you can and then do it all again with your left leg!
