Being Happy


It’s not in your job description to make other people happy but you can show them the way. You can light their path by following your passion, by living with integrity, empathy and kindness and by being present and helpful to those around you. But you can’t make them happy. This is a simple and revolutionary idea that once grasped is difficult to ignore.cropped-cropped-lotus-flower-banner4

Yoga Decreases Overeating


According to the National Institutes of Health, cardio exercise increases the risk of overeating, while yoga decreases overeating. Researchers studied the role of body awareness and mindfulness (found in practices like yoga) in the relationship between exercise and eating behavior. They concluded that practices like yoga may be more beneficial for those at risk for eating disorders than decreasing dietary intake.yoga

Understanding Namaste


The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another. Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you. Therefore, namaste literally means “bow me you” or “I bow to you.” ~Aadil Palkhivala

Namaste

The gesture of placing the hands, palms together, in front of the heart chakra is the same as verbalizing the word Namaste. This deep form of respect is traditionally done before and after yoga class; however, in the west it is more common after class.

 Namaste encourages individuals to recognize each other energetically in a timeless space of pure connection, free from the bonds of ego, fear and judgment.
