Our yoga asana practice helps us maintain our body’s elasticity long into life. Responding to demands placed on it through diverse situations, the living mind/body system dynamically and intelligently changes. Our yoga practice supports change and gives the body the opportunity to find something new. If we explore movement practices that open and balance the bodies tensions, the body remodels around the requirements of these new movements and life will center itself given the opportunity. Centering regularly brings us back to a healthy balance and this emphasis on continually re-centering reduces stress and allows the body to reprioritize healing and resting functions. From a physiological perspective, the centering process supports development of richer connections within inter-systemic networks and enhances communication throughout the body.
