100 Words: Equilibrium

spring equinoxTomorrow is spring.  Light and dark in balance.  This week, a friend died.  Another is having a baby.  The invitation is equilibrium:  balance between opposing forces, equanimity.

Nia is The Body’s Way; The Body’s Way is equilibrium.  Work when you’re working.  Rest when you’re resting.  So often we do both half-way.

Feel equilibrium, the balance between powers, when standing (head lifts, feet press down), in yoga postures (creating length), walking / dancing (one foot pushes, the other balances), or executing blocks or punches (one arm active, the other neutral).  Equilibrium offers more power.  The body loves equilibrium…notice when it is happening!
