Asanahimsa is a unique approach to yoga that explores the potential for balance and synthesis in those experiences that are seemingly diametrically opposed. Metaphorically speaking, it engages both the scalding hot and the bitter cold so as to achieve warmth. In asanahimsa, this exploration of dialectics is directed by the principle of “ahimsa” or nonviolence. Thus in seeking to achieve a nonviolent relationship with one’s self and others, asanahimsa encourages the confrontation of cognitive, emotional, and physical polarities that in concert provide the opportunity for synthesis, growth, and, ultimately, balance.

What does all that mean? Practically speaking, it means that you will learn to center your torso directly between your front and back legs in the warrior positions. It means that you will build core strength so as to have access to the levity that opposes gravity. It means that you will listen to The Beatles while moving through sun salutations. Ultimately, it means that you will be challenged to become more mindful of the extremes that offset your physical, emotional, and psychological equanimity so that you can acquire the balance that is at the foundation of peace.
