Focus the eyes. Focus the attention. Find your steadiness. A tip for balance poses. Find one spot in front of you, on the ground or ahead of you, a spot that is easy to see, a spot that is not moving (eg, not yourself in the mirror or your neighbor), and don’t take your eyes off of it. In yoga, this is often called your #drishti. There are other focal points of drishti, such as staring at the tip of the nose or third eye, for example, or using gaze to deepen your consciousness and enhance a sense of oneness. But when learning to balance, using a fixed gaze technique–focusing on one unwavering spot–can often transform a wobbling, falling down tree into a stable one. Try it.
Do yoga. Today. Every day.
