5 tips of balancing

  1.  Keeping your breath calm and steady can help a lot to stabilize mind and body.
  2. Start the pose from the base, broadening the surface of touch with the ground and rooting it down, may it be a hand, a foot, both hands or both feet, the forearms, or the head.
  3. Keep your gaze gently fixed on one point not too far ahead and move into and in your balance poses slowly and consciously; abrupt movements can shake us out of balance.
  4. When needed, use your hands, a wall, or a fellow yogi for support or to gain stability.
  5. Pay attention to the position and movement of the head because an important part of our equilibrium system is located in the inner ear.
