Nourish Your Mind-Body Connection…

…and Share Calm and Peace with the Community!

How do you nourish a healthy mind-body connection, find peace and compassion? Yoga is a great practice to nurture the mind/body connection.  The Tree Pose strengthens balance, provides subtle reminders about your posture and interesting insight about your current mental state. In many Indian traditions, trees, specifically the Ashoka tree, are symbols of love and devotion. Many native cultures seek the knowledge of trees for healing, searching their branches, trunks, leaves, and roots for powerful medicine. Patient by nature, trees are quiet and steady, living their long lives in rhythm with the seasons and the circadian rhythm of the world.

Practice your Tree Pose, then Capture and Share it with KRB and the community.  Post your photo to your Instagram and/or Facebook story and tag us: #keeprocklandbeautiful #krb #treepose #rocklandcounty #earthday #yoga #mindful
