Requirements for Achieving Balance

We will now practice balance through Tree Pose. First, we root our right foot into the mat. We bring our left foot to the ankle to prepare. We bring our hands together at heart center. Now we focus on an object that doesn’t move, clear our minds, relax our shoulders, then bring the left foot up to press against the outside of the right calf or thigh…

A version of leading the class into balance in Yoga.

I talked about using personality trait analysis as a means of coming into balance–becoming a whole, integrated, spiritual person–yesterday.

We come to balance through these elements:

  • Focus on the proper object
  • Clear our minds of detritus
  • Relax
  • Act

We study our personality in order to balance our positive impulses and negative ones bringing our personality into an integrated whole.
