Yoga Sūtra 2.46: The posture should be steady and comfortable.
In today’s fast paced world, finding and keeping a balanced life is more important than ever. In yoga, sutra 2.46 Sthira-sukham-āsanam can also be translated into “strength and ease”. When one area of the body is holding strong there should be ease in other areas. It’s all about balance. Even in a power vinyasa class, calming the mind, focusing on the breath, and finding ease where you can, is important because it allows you to tap into your body’s strength. Balance is powerful.
Yoga is not an exercise program as much as a way of life. While it may not be practical to do a power yoga practice every day, you can combine it with the practices of Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra meditation to find harmony in your body and mind at any given time.
Practicing the concept of Sthira-sukham daily on and off your mat can help you find much needed balance in your life and reach your fullest potential.
The 2.46 logo was inspired by the Sanskrit words for strength and ease: sthira-sukham-āsanam - स्थिरसुखमासनम्.

Hi! I'm Justina!!
I am a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher, and I am certified in Baptiste Power Yoga with over 300 hours of training in Power Vinyasa. I have an additional 100-hour Certification in Yoga Nidra and 60 hours of Yin Yoga training.
I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and discovered hot yoga in Amman, Jordan. Eight years ago, I fell in love with power vinyasa and have been practicing it ever since. As my practice evolved, I expanded my skills and studied Yin yoga with Evoke Energy Yoga. Yin has helped me connect with my body in a whole new way and informs my power practice and teaching, helping students “use the pose to get into the body”. Most recently, I successfully completed a 100-hour Yoga Nidra training with Hilary Jackendoff, and I am committed to bringing this restful practice to a weary world.
With these three forms of yoga, I have truly found the means to create sthira and sukha -- strength and ease -- in my life. It is my heartfelt desire to share it and hopefully have a positive impact on the world around me.
