How do You Find Balance?
It seems ridiculous that with two feet on the ground, our balance would be compromised. But I see it all the time in my students and clients.
So how do you find balance? It starts by finding your center physically and figuratively.
Build the pose from the ground up, just like you’d build a skyscraper. Make sure the weight bearing parts (foundation) are properly set. Feet not too close or not too far apart. If you’re in a pose where the front leg is bent, step the feet far enough apart that the front leg can bend 90 degrees.
Unplug the pose by putting your hands on hips or on the floor or blocks so you can support yourself and easily move your feet precisely to where you want them. This is critical. If you are stepped too wide, you’ll get exhausted quickly; stepped too close and you will teeter.
