The theme this week at church was balance.  Since I've been yogaing more frequently than normal to make up for the loss of things like walks to the coffee shop, I was reminded that balance seems easy and yet requires a lot of muscles.  There are seemingly simple poses I have trouble maintaining or maintaining on one side more than the other.  Balance seems like a thing you just get, that should just happen by remaining still.  But that, like so many things about life is a lie.  It requires work and muscles and concentration.  
And that even in yoga you only try to maintain balance for a little while and then you get to move into a rest pose.
