Occasionally, if one is very quiet, a GH may be seen for a few moments enjoying the Seattle sun.
On very rare occasions one may be invited to watch the performance of Green Heron Yoga. The first pose is by far the most common.
The Frog Finder:
While fairly intense this pose is just a warm up for what is to follow.
The Love Bird:
The Upturned Boat:
The Headless Horseman:
The Fred Astaire:
The Twisting Pretzel:
The Rockstar Rooster:
No hair gel was involved in the making of this photo.
The Praying Mantis:
The Choking Frog:
The Yawning Crow:
The Downward Looking Dog:
The Rising Cobra:
The One Legged Crane:
The Heavy Load:
The Eagle Landing:
The Guiding Monkey:As if to say, "When you get to Beaver Lodge Sanctuary head south to see the Eagle's nest."
Please do not attempt Green Heron Yoga at home. Only trained professionals can hold these poses without serious bodily damage.
Seriously, being able to share the peace, quiet and warmth of the early morning sun with such a beautiful creature is the most invigorating form of meditation possible. Hopefully, some of that inner peace and joy came through to you while viewing these photos.
PS: I would love to hear which pose is your favorite. If you would please leave your thoughts in the comments area below so everyone can read them. Thank you!
