What better way to feel peace and at one with nature than to find a quiet spot and invite a yoga practice to unfold. Sometimes barefoot on warm grass, sometimes walking boots in the wet...
Try it ...
No need for any equipment or special clothing, be spontaneous. Where ever you find yourself, look for a roughly level spot and check the ground is clear - ants, tiny thistles and dead holly leaves are all to be avoided! Enjoy the surroundings for a few minutes - indulge your senses. Take in the view, near and far - what details might you have been missing? What can you hear, even from far off. Allow yourself time to really enjoy birds singing, the scent and feel of the earth, of nature and of the wind on your face.
Whether sitting on a bench, branch or log; walking or standing - notice how you feel and begin to move in a way that feels right. Let the surroundings and conditions on the day help you decide what to do. If it's wet or cold it will be a standing, more dynamic practice. If it's warm and you feel comfortable it might be a meditation. Do whatever comes to mind, it might be just for a few minutes, or more might flow out of you.
Enjoy immersing yourself in the landscape- inner and outer; becoming more and more at one with nature.
