Leaning Tree

This variation of Tree pose will offer a wonderful stretch for the sides of your torso.
Stand with your feet together. Put all your weight into your left foot and lift your right foot off the ground. Grab onto your right ankle with your right hand, flex your foot, and place your heel as far up your leg as possible with your toes pointing down.
To prevent your right foot from sliding down, actively press your left leg and the sole of your right foot against each other. Draw your right knee back to open your hip.
Press your palms together in front of your heart and raise your arms over your head. Slowly lower your right forearm and rest it on your right thigh, leaning to the right.
Stay here for five breaths.


Oh man, I love every tree variation there is.

The story behind the Art

I was sitting in a café in The Village, relaxing after a three-week creative journey through the Northeast.

In walks a girl; red dress, yoga mat—stunning. I asked her where she was going to practice. She asked me my name. Robert, I replied. “No, your last name,” she asked. Sturman, I said. Turns out we are friends on Facebook, both in New York visiting.

Moments later, we walked out into the big city in the small world and made beautiful art, ending at Ground Zero, as she offered the most beautiful Teardrop I’ve ever seen.


The beautifully talented yogini is Meghan Currie.

The powerful images of mixed-media artist Robert Sturman have a vivid presence that is both other-worldly and deeply rooted in the earthly wonders he has explored so adventurously in his global travels. A spiritual journeyer as well, Sturman is an intuitive creator whose works resonate with an inner vision as much as they reach out to embrace the viewer with tactile, richly hued physicality. The official visual artist of 2005’s 47th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, Sturman has formal training as a painter and photographer, and holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Santa Cruz. For more on Robert and his art please visit him on Facebook or his website.

So beautiful…

Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
