posture of the month

“This is the most important pose. Do it right and all the others will follow.” Vanda Scaravelli

stand with feet comfortably apart – toes spreading – heels dropping
your mountain base is wide and steady

let breath move softly
relax your shoulders – head rising skyward

stay awhile – until you become quieter
much quieter

listen to that peace and quiet!

let your body become even quieter

breathe out – from your head to the earth

then wait. wait in silence

then open to the new breath – in through your feet, up into your body space, to the summit.

i have learnt to respect the mountain.

“Great things are done when men and mountains meet.” William Blake

(this is the posture we also call samastiti – they are not strictly the same – but let’s not quibble)!
