Center & Be Present

Did you know that we meditate at class? That time at the beginning & end of practice when we follow our breath & calm our mind... yep that's meditation. Some are surprised to hear this because meditation is often portrayed as an elusive & complicated practice.

Meditation is actually loosely defined as the observance of life. I find meditation helps us to center & be present to our experience on the mat. The links on the left contain information, research, benefits as well as a sample meditation you can do anywhere.

together let's slow down & enjoy the sweetness of life

Yoga is like cake without the frosting: Something's missing. You need meditation. It's the frosting.
