When thinking of balance poses, such as the challenging Half Moon, we are reminded of the focus and concentration needed to maintain stability within the body and mind. Balancing brings your attention to the present moment and can be playful, yet frustrating at the same time.
Yoga is the union of the mind and body. It is a word that can be intimidating at any age; many envision a conditioned yogi performing advanced pretzel-like poses. But many styles of yoga exist, from simple chair stretches to sequences of flowing poses that move with your breath. It’s important to find a style that meets your needs, whether it is to improve balance and flexibility or a way to wind down after a long day. Yoga comes in all ages, fitness levels, shapes, and sizes.
