Balancing Effort and Ease

Begin on your back with controlled belly-up core exercises before moving through a balanced practice culminating in crow pose. The word hatha embodies two opposites, the sun and the moon. The practice of yoga is to unite opposites, creating a steady balance, the result of intention and ease. The ability to embody both of these opposite qualities is at the heart of yoga, referenced in the yoga Sutras as “sthira sukham asanam."
