Why We Come To Our Mats

As human beings, it is part of us to get caught up in our own stories - ruminating on our past, dreaming about our future - that we suffer in this moment rather than living in the NOW. To bring you to the present moment, think RIght Now… right now I have my breath; right now I have my family; right now I don’t feel pain; right now I am grateful for this experience; right now I choose to see and experience blessings.

If we bring our practice into these moments, we can see that even in the hardest moments, there is collateral beauty. In every moment what is wrong is always available. But if we are practicing yoga, we can also find what is right.
