EQUANIMITY: mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper

The theme for week 3 of our 40 Days to Personal Revolution is equanimity.  In case, any of you don’t know what the definition of this word is, like I didn’t, I wanted to share it with you, especially because before I knew the definition of this word, eqanimity is one of the major benefits I have received from practicing yoga.  One of the poses we do during the Equanimity section of our Journey into Power sequence is Eagle Pose or Garudasana. Here is a link about how to come into this pose, some modifications, and the benefits of eagle.  Bring equanimity into your yoga practice, and into your life.  Namaste…
