What is a “Mantra”?

“I am that”

On¬†Wednesday I signed up for a 7-day pass at The Yoga Center of Medford. A full week of unlimited classes…ahhhh ūüôŹ

This studio has no mirrors. This can be a relief for some, but it is a challenge for many. It is only natural to want to look in a mirror while practicing yoga. I used to be worried about how my poses looked compared to all the videos and pictures online.  Practicing without a mirror at home changed my perspective on progress. Unless I am taking a class at the gym, I seek out studios without mirrored walls.

There are cards available to help with focus. They are names of gods/goddesses and angels. The card I received was Zanna.

It is kind of ironic that I should pick this card; the pains of my past are what led me to yoga. I felt a sense of peace.

I loved the class so much that I returned on Friday. The instructor was different, as was her style. There was less flow, more breathing thru postures. I enjoyed the stretching along with a bit of core awareness!

Class this morning was with Bonnie. She is a wonderful instructor! I took her class once before and by far she is the most spiritual instructor I have ever had. She takes the class from root to crown reciting mantras. I just might incorporate this style in some of my home-practice sessions. ūüėĀ

Good News… I still have two days left on my week pass! Yay!!
Namaste
