Archery-Inspired Asana

Archery gives yogis a great metaphor for skill, strength, and alignment. In the Mundaka Upanishad, it’s stated that “om,” or our mantra, acts as a bow, creating the required building of energy and steadiness for the arrow (our individual soul) to reach the target (the universal soul). If we aim precisely, it is written, we, too, can merge with our target, just like the arrow. So join in this archery-inspired, hip-opening practice designed to help you build the focus and stamina to meet your goals!
