Chukas is a parsha of transition. We are transitioning from the phase of wandering in the desert to a new stage. This ends the forty years of travel and begins the coming into Israel.
The generation of the spies, the generation of Korach, and the generation of slavery: they all died off. The children of that generation, along with a new leader, Joshua, transitioned to the going into Israel.
Our yoga pose is a pose of transition.
Transition from being seated cross-legged to forming a tabletop with our bodies.
Sit on mat, cross-legged.
Rock forward to knees which are still crossed.
Hands on ground in front of you.
Uncross legs to create a tabletop.
