Like every year, 2016 had it's ups and downs but it feels like the fluctuations of life are even more heightened these days. Life is a roller coaster and sometimes we just want it to stop! So what can we do? Thankfully, Hatha Yoga offers us a sane response to these crazy times by helping us stay connected to our center, which has a grounding and stabilizing effect on every aspect of our life.
Engage in a daily breath and movement practice to develop physical strength and stability, cultivate mental calm and clear focus, and open your heart to a greater sense of connection and purpose by participating in the union of opposites: inhale/exhale, strength/receptivity, earth/sky, inner/outer. When you participate in the play of opposites your unchanging, immovable, deepest Self is revealed as the witness to it all, and you begin to relax into your natural state of peace, calm and equanimity.
