Yoga Lesson: Equanimity
This new year my intention is to cultivate more Sattva (equanimity) in my life. Sattva is one of the three gunas (qualities) that together create the essential aspects of all nature—energy, matter and consciousness. Sattva is a state of harmony, balance, joy and intelligence. One of the primary goals of yoga is cultivate Sattva while reducing the other two gunas: tamas (darkness) and rajas (activity).
