Balancing postures gives us a chance to find our centre while instilling a deep sense of calmness within, even though these postures require intense, unwavering alertness. When we balance, we align our centre of gravity with the earth’s gravitational field putting ourselves in physical equilibrium with a fundamental force of nature. This harmony is achieved by refreshing our balance moment after moment bringing not only the physical body into balance but also our nerve impulses, thoughts emotions and very consciousness. It is this equilibrium that brings equanimity. Practicing balancing improves our concentration and strengthens muscles and alignment, enabling us to move with ease and confidence. These postures activate the third eye chakra, Anja, the power house of pure energy allowing us to experience unconditional joy and love.
