Joyful Balance

In classes this week we explored the joy of balance ... balancing warm and cool energies, right and left sides of the body, as well as exploring the balance of heaviness and lightness, and water and air, in the body. (Oh, and we stood on one leg too, which certainly counts as balance!)

When the weather turns so drastically hot (or cold), it's good to remember that we need to adjust our internal energies and find that comfortable balance that will sustain us. (And, of course, your yoga mat is a good place to start balancing!)

Here is the quote from this week's classes. I think it's a good reminder ...

"You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and to be vibrantly alive in repose." ~ Indira Gandhi

May your day be a balanced and happy one!
