MOUNTAIN and TREE

TADASANA & VRKSASANA

The idea of a vertical line connecting earth and heaven comes from Vedic times. Later this was symbolized as a mountain, with its roots in the earth and its peak in the heavens. The Mountain is aligned along the pull of gravity and should be both stable and relaxed. Tree pose grows along this same axis with its root going down as the branches stretch upward.
