"The tree embodies all of yoga's teachings, and so trees make a wonderful guru...Where tree meets sky is the spaciousness of yoga. Where tree connects with earth is the groundedness of yoga. Where tree stands in space is the peaceful centredness of yoga. The tree stands at the centre of its own circle, and daily life rotates around it. Even within the frantic rush of city life we can always find a moment of peace when we rest our gaze upon a tree."
From "Yoga Through the Year", Jilly Shipway
"Trees are beautifully present, complex beings, deeply interconnected with the natural world around them, and the flow of the year's seasonal cycles."
From "Walking With Trees", Glennie Kindred
