Balance is not simply about developing the strength and muscularity to perform the perfect triple pirouette. It’s about learning to stay grounded in yourself so that you know what you need, you keep your priorities in line and at the same time remain flexible and forgiving enough to not push yourself in counterproductive ways.
Balance also means staying in touch with how you feel, listening to your body. It begins with the physical but it’s equal parts emotional and mental. Without balance your risk a burnout and all of its side effects. Balancing your eating habits, your workout schedule and your attitude towards both gives you the clarity to make changes, motivate yourself and be truly living in the Ballet Beautiful mindset.
