Tadasana – or Mountain Pose, is a grounded, foundational yoga pose. You stand with your arms at your sides, feet rooting down into the earth, spine and head reaching towards the clouds. And just like the pose, crafting this sock will recharge and calm the mind – and help you build key skills to guide you on your lifelong knitting journey!
This design was dreamt up in deep gratitude for the amazing yoga teachers I have had the honour and joy of learning from throughout the years. To say they have helped me transform my life is an understatement!
