When is a body shape merely a body shape, and what transforms it into an asana?
It is the suffusion of the body with the breath, of bringing the quality of the breath to the shape, to the movement, that transforms a shape into an asana, a body movement into the practice of yoga. This is what fundamentally differentiates yoga from exercise, and what gives it the power to integrate mind and body.
16 Feb 2015 » Practicing the art of balancing
When we talk about balancing, both physically as well as in terms of our life as a whole, we often use the words finding balance, as if balance were a magical state that we only need to discover, hiding somewhere under a giant lotus leaf. I don't want to read too much into the simple phrase "finding balance", but the words we use to describe phenomena do subtly influence how we think about them. Finding balance makes you search for an idealized unchanging state that you think exists somewhere. Thinking about practicing the art of balancing on the other hand focuses your awareness on the active and ongoing part you play in balancing. And when you internalize this perspective, practicing the art of balancing will become much easier, because balance is something dynamic and ever-changing, and requires — and thus teaches you — continuous full awareness.
