Struggling to find balance in your life? It could be time to take advice from an ancient sage. Patanjali, the father of modern yoga, compiled a book known as the Yoga Sutras around 2,000 years ago.
While the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is the foundation for most of the yoga taught around the world today, don’t look to Patanjali to learn how to align your hips in Warrior 1. The only specific instruction he gives about yoga poses is this:
"Sthira Sukham Asanam."
Steadiness AND ease are required in asana (yoga postures).
