Balance isn’t static, it’s not a fixed point on an axis. It’s fluid, dynamic, and ever evolving. It changes moment to moment, day to day. In sports and in life, Balance optimizes everything and is key in the successful pursuit of goals.
Yearly and maybe monthly, weekly, or daily you set goals, concrete and focused. You've probably heard the adage, “Be stubborn about your goals, but flexible in your methods.” When you unpack what that really looks like you’ll find power in Balance.
Imagine your goals sharp on the horizon in the distance. Now soften your gaze, so that you can see the land between you and that horizon. Those are the actions and days between. Each day, every moment is an opportunity check in with yourself, become more aware of the reality of where you are, and then respond accordingly. This more than anything will narrow and eventually close the gap between where you are, and where you want to be.
The spring equinox is the seasonal balance between the extremes of winter and summer. It’s a perfect time to revisit your goals and reassess your approach — to invite more balance and fluidity to your pursuit. Need inspiration? The Yoga for Balance Collection is a good place to start.
