A Blessing & Prayer

Please evoke a feeling of gratitude. Grateful that all of life’s experiences have led you to this moment. That this is exactly where you are meant to be.

Each of us honor different paths & lineages and our attraction to the practice of yoga is diverse – may we continue to support one another on our path. In our words & actions, may we continue to respect our diversity.

Each day, may we find time to take good care of ourselves – receiving well so that we may continue to serve. As teachers, may we continue to share our great love & respect of this amazing journey with our students.

With a profound & humble honoring, let’s remember our teachers. Those who have paved the way for us. Remembering our yoga teachers and also our life teachers (school teacher, family member, neighborhood elder). Where ever they may be, sending heart felt gratitude.

Let’s offer a prayer of intent to use the teachings wisely, never taking them for granted.

May we regularly reflect on our personal practice – asking ourselves “Who am I becoming through this practice?” “Am I becoming the world in which I wish to live?”

May we be the light that we seek so that others may see the way. May our thoughts, words, and hearts resonate.

Please take a moment now and express what you are grateful for specifically in your life.

May we continue to be grateful for all of life that comes our way. May we see both our blessings & obstacles as our teachers.

May we continue to serve well. May we know peace.
