Center of mass:The point in a system of bodies or an extended body at which the mass of the system may be considered to be concentrated and at which external forces may be considered to be applied.
Center of gravity: the point within something at which gravity can be considered to act; in uniform gravity it is equal to the center of mass, it is the point at which all the surrounding weight is equal. It is the point at which an object is in balance.
Our center of gravity shifts with each movement. When the distribution of our weight changes, the center of gravity shifts toward the greater weight concentration.
Lowering the center of gravity increases one's stability.
You can go through many asanas in yoga which will help you in telling which asana gives more stability.
Hope this is useful
