Day 9 – Balance | BREATH – A 30 Day Yoga Journey

We ease in to practice today with a breath technique that can help balance out the brain and body. Alternate Nostril Breathing, also called Nadhi Shodana, is an incredible tool for activating the parasympathetic nervous system which can restore balance – particularly if you are consciously, or subconsciously, living more in fight or flight mode – which is common in such uncertain times.

We will introduce the powerful play of opposites in yoga asana as well, considering the ways in which we may join steadiness, or STHIRA, with ease, or SUKHA.

I will guide postures today that are there not to discourage you, but to help you play with the concept of how to create a dance for both steadiness and ease, and one that is individual for you.

I invite you to use this material to check in, learn, and grow.

Remember, it’s not about being able to stand on one foot.

Learn the process of centering yourself, and remember, it’s a process.

If you fall, I will catch you.

You got this.
