First off, anyone reading this practice yoga? What’s your favorite style? Though I’m at a Moksha studio, I also love practicing yin.
In a short two and a half years, yoga has become about the only thing I consistently make time for outside family, friends and work. It started as a quest to do SOME kind of exercise, continued because of the huge difference it made for my chronically sore shoulder and hip, and hooked me for life with the impact I’ve experienced on my state of being.
Yoga is really about breathing. Breathing deeply. Breathing through discomfort. Focusing on each breath to be present in the moment.
Each class, we begin by setting an intention and use this as a mantra to bring our focus back if we get distracted or frustrated. There is a hashtag movement on Twitter for #MondayMantra, so today will be my first time to participate on this blog.
This week’s Monday Mantra:
I am my best master and my worst enemy.
