Wild Asana: Tulipa Kaufmannia

wild tulip asana

I love flowers and plants despite my inability to cultivate them in my own apartment. And because spring is finally here, I’ve been checking out what beauties are in bloom. This week at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Tulipa Kaufmanniana ‘Ancilla’ hits the scene.

At first I was thinking Navasana with this one. The petals seem to be at the right angle for that. But there was something even more grounded and powerful happening here. Something about the stretching and reaching for the sky in standing splits seemed like a better match. What do you think?

The Tulips kaufmannia image is by Bill Pusztai and can be found here. And the standing split was found at the Maalaimalar Tamil Daily News. Because the internet is a wonderful place.
