tree pose, vrksasana —keeping your balance is never a static endeavor and it's always good to have help. ships in a flat envelope unmounted, but secure. 8x10 cut out of premium black printmaking paper.

The name comes from the Sanskrit words vṛkṣa (वृक्ष) meaning "tree",and āsana (आसन) meaning "posture"....

Further note from wiki on vrksasana: A 7th-century stone carving in Mahabalipuram appears to contain a figure standing on one leg, perhaps indicating that a pose similar to vrikshasana was in use at that time. It is said that sadhus disciplined themselves by choosing to meditate in the pose. This pose is described in the 17th century Gheraṇḍa Saṃhitā 2.36.
