There’s more to the yoga analogy here. I’ve just started doing it and I find that before I can really worry about the balance stuff, I have a lot of stretching to do. A lot of the balancing depends on being limber enough to cede some of the balance to aligned bones – a structural integrity undermined by tight muscles. On the other hand, it’s also clear that balance depends on building up all the tiny muscles you never knew existed that help to make those minute adjustments when balancing for a long period of time. So maybe you are also in the process of stretching and building tiny muscles so that the next stage of balance you achieve will be more coordinated and stable.
