The study of asana is not about mastering posture. It’s about using posture to understand and transform yourself. – B.K.S Iyengar⁣ •••⁣ 📷 @gracelorenzoyoga⁣ 🎨 @vyalone⁣ •••⁣ It’s still fun making cool shapes tho, even if they’re far from perfect! ☺️⁣ ⁣ This was what initially got me hooked on yoga- arm balances & inversions. Before yoga, I never saw myself as being strong or balanced, so getting into these challenging poses felt (and still feels) pretty awesome. But this year, I’ve found myself enjoying a much more gentle (Yin-like), and much less goal/challenge-driven (Yang-like) practice - much like my current approach to life. My current daily practice is mostly gentle flows, restorative/yin postures, and meditation, with occasional arm balances/inversions sprinkled in just for fun. ⁣ ⁣ Most of my life I’ve had a very Yang approach- eager for action, change, movement, accomplishment. And I think it’s safe to say our society molds us into glorifying this mindset, overlooking that even within Yang, there needs to be a bit of Yin- (represented by the small dot in the symbol) which is about stillness, allowing, being present. And vice versa. These opposites are complementary to each other. Neither are superior, and a balance of the two are needed to achieve harmony. Outwardly, there may not be a whole lot happening in the slow/quiet practice, but what we don’t see is all that is happening inwardly- where transformation begins and eventually carries outwardly. ☯️✨
