Recently while doing some work outside on the farmhouse property we are renting in the Hudson Valley, I was struck by the parallels between creating personal Yoga practices and gardening.
I put together a short video that captured those thoughts and which sets up a Yoga for Gardening practice that I’ve created.

A Multi-Dimensional Yoga for Gardening Practice
Here is the Illustrated Yoga for Gardening (PDF) practice that includes instructions for asana and for pranayama in asana, as well as a poem (“Garden Sanctuary”) that you can use to frame your reflections during the practice.
I look forward to your comments and encourage you to share this post with your Yoga and gardening enthusiast friends.
