Moon circle, Moon lodge, Trauma-aware Workshop, and MORE! Practice of the Week: Showing up for your practice in studio is amazing, AND there is something extra magical about showing up for your practice outside of the studio. The URU team desires to support you in deepening your personal practice and to empower you to take learning and practicing into your own hands. This week we invite you to explore an asana, a physical posture. Vrksasana (Tree Pose) Vrksasana (tree pose) is a beginner level balancing pose. A non-exhaustive list of benefits to practicing and refining this posture are: Stretches your feet. Tree pose can help stretch and strengthen the ligaments and tendons in your feet. Improves balance. Tree pose requires proper weight distribution and posture, which can help provide stability to your groin, thighs, hips, and pelvis. Strengthens your core. How To: Ground through your standing foot. Feel all four corners of that foot connected to the Earth… the ball joint of the big toe, ball joint of the pinky toe, and the back two corners of the heel. Evenly distribute your weight between these four points. Spread your toes to aid in balance. Find a focal point, a drishti, somewhere to focus your gaze on that isn’t moving to help you balance. Begin to raise the opposite heel, balance on your toes at first to find your center. Ensure both hip points are shining straight ahead of you. It’s helpful to begin with your hands on your hips and imagine that there are two headlights on each hip point. Then you can begin to externally rotate your lifted legs hip by allowing the knee to come out to the side. Still checking in with the grounded foot and hips. Actively press away from the standing leg. Find a place for your lifted foot to rest… either toes on the ground with the arch of your lifted foot resting on the inner heel of your grounded foot, lifted foot resting on the calf, or lifted foot pressing into the inner thigh of the grounded leg. Never rest your foot where you are pressing weight into your knee. This is not beneficial to knee health. Take any arm variation that feels good and is supportive (e.g. lifted arms, prayer position, arms clasped behind, hands on hips…) Imagine your lifted foot pressing into your standing leg and also imagine your standing leg pressing into your lifted foot. This will support you in not collapsing into your hip. Lift from your crown and hug everything into center as you breathe here. Come out of the posture the way you came into it by allowing the lifted knee to come back into center, and then gently place your foot on the ground. Repeat on the other side 🙂 Happy practicing!
