The question is, can we have both?

We sometimes hear students say, โ€œI prefer vinyasa class. I just want to move.โ€

Or โ€œI prefer Hatha class because I feel more steady.โ€

In yoga ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ and in life ๐Ÿƒ , we are always trying to find the balance between stability and freedom.

โžก๏ธ Having too much freedom can make us feel vulnerable and disconnected. On the other hand, too much stability can make us feel rigid and constricted.

We tend to feel that discipline and structure are something that binds us but the truth is, we need structure to make us feel free.

โญ๏ธ Having a consistent routine and practice is freeing because it no longer needs white-knuckling, willpower to do the thing.

โญ๏ธ Practicing good alignment is freeing, because we feel stable and steady.

And in the context of yoga practice, โ€œjust flowโ€ is great.

But โ€œjust flowโ€ without learning the alignment and building stability and strength, the flow will not be appreciated. And most importantly, it may cause injuries.

I know many of you prefer to โ€œjust flowโ€. But if you can choose to move freely or choose to move with a balance of stability and freedom, what would you choose?

If you can train both endurance and movement in your practice, you can achieve both stability and freedom.
