Why is Balance So Important?

Updated: Dec 11, 2021

Why does balance in our lives mean harmony, let’s go deeper.

In yoga we talk a lot about balance but usually people go right to our ability to be physically balanced in our postures, which yoga does. But let’s talk about what else yoga “balances”.

“Self-care is, fundamentally, about bringing balance back to a life that has grown imbalanced from too many commitments or responsibilities.” -Robyn L. Gobin, The self-care prescription

Let’s go over a few of the systems that are balanced through yoga and how.

The Nervous System

When we focus on pranayama the breathing begins to massage our vagues nerve. It starts to activate the parasympathetic nervous system calming us down, and putting us back into a state of rest and digest instead of fight or flight.

The Digestive System

Through our postures and breath we also balance or digestive system, simply by oxygenating and massaging the digestive organs.

The Immune System

By lowering our stress and cortisol production the immune system automatically becomes balanced and strong. It also helps us sleep and eat better.
