Whether you practice bendy poses, engage in selfless service or sit in meditation, #yoga cultivates a balanced state of being in each moment.
Whether you practice bendy poses, engage in selfless service or sit in meditation, yoga cultivates a balanced state of being in each moment. We learn to soften and rest in a rooted, vital and expansive state, as part of a much bigger whole. Our sense of separation dissolves and we find a oneness with an immensity beyond our limited sense of self.
The Hatha Yoga Pradipika, an ancient Hindu text, encourages yogis to cultivate “sukha” and “stira”, a balanced state of being that is neither too relaxed nor too alert, but a joining of the two. Many, such as artists, athletes and business people, find a balanced flow when in peak performance. In that flow, the individual has tapped into a much greater whole. There is no defensive holding on to the ego, but a surrender to a much greater force. But that transcendent self can only be touched when we are willing to go within, become aware of the areas that keep us stuck and gently let them go. Just like any #Olympian must practice to find that peak state, so too aspiring yogis must practice to find the place of flow and balanced oneness in their lives.
