In Yoga With Trees by Jenny Garrison, the author speaks about the bond she shares with trees and how they are an important part of her life. From childhood to her teens to her adult life, the author speaks about the trees that bore witness to her journey. After becoming a Spiritualist, her visit to the church - which is in an old Spiritualist community in New York state called Lily Dale - connected her with trees, old happy trees that grow in the old forest that graces the grounds. A Cucumber Magnolia Tree there inspired her to develop Yoga with Trees. Divided into three sections, Part I of the book will guide readers 'to yoke' with trees, knitting together lore, practices, and ideas, Part II has illustrations and guidelines for poses with trees, and Part III speaks about real-life stories and reflections about trees.

The book is insightful and thought-provoking, captures the magic of trees, and will encourage readers to form a bond with the natural world and trees. Humans and trees are connected and there are some amazing similarities between them. Reading this book will help readers develop a new way of understanding trees. The author encourages readers to bond closely with the trees around them and makes readers aware of their silent and vital presence. I like the way she has written Yoga with Trees. It will motivate readers to practice yoga outside or facing a tree, having it as a yoga partner. I am going to do my Hatha yoga practice starting tomorrow by facing the banyan tree that spreads its branches onto my balcony. Having a tree as a yoga partner will help readers understand the importance of being grounded while reaching out to the skies.

This book is sheer magic and takes readers into another realm where they feel a wonderful connection with life and will think about the trees they have known and they know now. It makes us aware of how nature, trees, and plants play an important role when it comes to clearing energy fields and raising one's energy, mood, and vibration. Trees are great helpers in clearing away stale energy and creating a refreshed state in the energy field. Let us take a moment and yoke ourselves with trees by asking questions. Who are the trees inside us? What trees live in our inner world? Let us thank the trees in our lives and keep our love story with them perennial and fresh.
