Do you practice a mantra?
A mantra is a word or a phrase that can be repeated aloud or quietly to oneself. The aim is to focus the mind and an intention to oneself or a higher divine power. The simplest word is "om" or "aum". The sound vibration helps to clear the mind and bring peace to the spirit.
I have been a long time practitioner and a teacher of yoga since 2006. I hope to share the benefits of yoga in my instructions to those who attend my classes. Yoga is not just the physical poses but also an awareness of our breath, body, and spirit. Every one's yoga experience is infinite with many possibilities. Every one's yoga experience is infinite with many possibilities. The goal is to attain balance and peace of mind. ~ Sharon
