Balancing poses can be great to improve concentration and it provides the ultimate platform to test your focus. After all if you are not focused, you will fall out of the pose 😉 The challenge is then to get back into the pose, without feeling let down or frustrated with your body, but to team up with it and get back into the pose.
Isn’t that how challenges are overcome in life off the mat as well. How you react to failures and successes. Do you allow your self to sulk in a downward spiral if you’ve failed at a project or you pick yourself up and be brave to try again and take risks in life. Do you become extremely proud and attached when you have achieved success at a constant rate or do you continue to strive along a humble path with your achievements.
Balancing poses just like some other yoga poses can tell a lot about how we react off the mat and can teach us how to respond instead of reacting. The yoga poses given here are quite simple and can help you develop better focus and attention. To feel how the body responds to your instruction. Balancing poses help develop grace over time. If you are one of those who finds these poses challenging, then even more the need for you to practice them. The reward will come from practice and you will see results and improvements with daily and determined practice.
So Enjoy and keep up the practice.
