It’s all in the balance

Yoga is like life – its a balance of holding on and letting go. We cannot control the flow of life entirely, so we must learn to do what we can and let go of the rest. This is what the asanas (postures) teach us. Through holding postures, we learn to be in the present moment, do our best, and surrender to the rest. Yoga literally rewires the brain to cope in this way as we hold difficult poses. So when we are faced with hardships in real life, those neurological pathways fire out of habit and we learn healthier stress responses. Not only does this increase our coping mechanisms, but also leads to a more fulfilled and happier existence
