Balance On and Off the Mat
Updated: Dec 21, 2018
Yoga balances can lead to a more balanced approach to life
I have been focusing a lot on arm balances during my practice recently, and it has reminded me of how applicable lessons learnt from performing yoga poses can be off the matt. All asanas require strength, flexibility, discipline, energy, ability to surrender and of course, balance.
Yoga reminds me how to balance myself both on and off the matt. I believe that if we constantly desire for more to the point of extremity, then we are trying to fill a void and we are not happy. But if we do not try at all then we stay stuck in one place, and we are not happy.
