Finding Balance in Yoga and Life

“Yoga is a dance of dealing with what is and allowing yourself to fully experience whatever you’re experiencing right here, in the moment. In life, we so often resist what we don’t like or don’t want to do. Here, on your mat, is a safe opportunity to see what’s on the other side of that.” —Baron Baptiste, Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice

Being present and “Finding Balance” in life is so important yet seems so complicated. There are mountains of books and articles written about “Finding Balance”. A Google search of “how to find balance in your life” brings up 1,040,000,000 results. How can your yoga practice help you tackle the challenge of being present and “Finding Balance”? One word: Equanimity.

There are many ways to experience and express thanks. Here are a few simple ideas on how you can proceed with intentional gratitude, both in life—off the mat, and in yoga—on the mat.
