Day 90 #the100dayproject 🔻Child Pose, 2017 according to both the Yoga Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita, the ultimate goal of yoga lies in our surrender to a higher power. Yoga is usually regarded as a practice that liberates us from the ego, but at the same time it binds us of the divine through love. And this is what child's pose symbolizes. It is a child like surrender it to the divine that opens up the pathway of grace. And All past, present, and future sages of yoga with testify that grace is what we need, as we are all dependent on something that is greater than ourselves. We often did not realize this enough, and take many things for granted. The ground we stand on, the air we breathe. But it may all be taken away from us at any moment in time. And then surrender is all that is left to Us. In surrender we truly open ourselves up to receive and also to give. Balasana invites us to cultivate this child-like quality. •Myths of Asana, Alana Makvalya & Arjuna Van Der Koann
