I love my weekly yoga class.

For a whole hour I do nothing but focus on my breathing, my body, and my connection with the ground below me.

To start the class we chant "Om."

Om is a mantra that represents the unification of the body, mind and spirit.

We often operate each of these components of ourselves separately. How many times have I been driving (body) and have been so far off in my own world (mind) that I don't even remember traveling the miles. Or when I take time to connect spiritually with my surroundings, in stillness and silence, my body won't let go or relax.

But in this hour every week, I am practicing what Om has the ability to achieve. It's not perfect but its an effort. And all I know is I feel so peaceful when I'm done. And that has to mean something!

When I chant Om in my yoga class, my heart feels fulfilled, my body is relaxed, and my mind is quiet. I bring my hands to my heart and breathe out feeling with all my being that this is where I'm supposed to be.


BPositive and BUnified!
