The problem with doing poses on one side is that often times we don’t make it completely even. So even if you hold if for a similar amount of time and put a similar amount of energy into it, it’s never going to be perfectly the same. And we do want our bodies to be developed in an even way. Symetric poses can accomplish that. So if we make sure not to do anything on one side and not on another side we’re really going to develop our practice in a way that feels centered and balanced. This practice is all symmetric postures.
