Each time we arrive to do asana, meditation or pranayama, we get to see that yoga is a “practice,” that we are not exactly perfect, and that there is room to continue to learn and evolve in our practice.
One of the most amazing gifts you can give yourself is the gift of clean air. Choose to reduce toxins in your personal living space by substituting harmful chemical cleaners with “green” cleaning supplies such as pure essential oils and white vinegar. Here are a few green cleaning recipes that will leave you breathing easy and happy.
As human beings, our hands help us access what we need and do, embrace others, offer our gifts through service, eat, pray, and communicate. In the practice of yoga we can use hand gestures, called mudras, to help the mind focus, before and during meditation, and throughout the day. Mudras utilize points along the energy channels of the body, the meridians, and give feedback to the brainvia sensory reception. The subtle body also has influence on the brain and on the mind so these hand gestures can affect our mindset.
