RETURNING TO BALANCE: A Yoga Asana practice
By Tulsi Bagnoli M.A.- Caribbean Body & Soul Magazine
The practice of yoga invites us to arrive and acknowledge where we are and work from there to grow and deepen our experience. Through our intention, awareness, movements, and breath we cultivate our experience of life. Whatever you put your attention on grows stronger in your life. When our only reference point is the ever-changing world around us, rising and falling like the ocean tide, that is all that we know: diversity. Many ancient texts whispered the teaching, ‘look beyond the every changing world around us and turn within to know your true nature.’ Thankfully those that came before us have passed down techniques to help us tune into the rhythms and cycles in nature to aid in guiding us back to balance, to our true Self. Inside of us all is the inherent ability to heal ourselves completely, sometimes we need the reminder of how to take that inner journey and return to balance.
