DEFINING FINDING YOUR CENTER
Aiming for pure joy and success in performance and wellness, while using yoga to get you there.
As a brass player, I've heard the term "playing in the center of the note" a million times. This refers to the sweet spot where the note is resonant, in tune, and not chipped. "Center" is also something commonly referred to in yoga when becoming present and tuning into oneself Mentally, "Finding your center" is another way of saying that one is "in the zone," or they have found a mental space in which they feel as though they have become absorbed by what they're doing. This state was given the term flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, who portrayed it as a time of pure joy in which a person is so completely absorbed in an activity, that nothing else seems to matter.
