Just Take a Breathe Already!

February 24th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Today, in the middle of a yoga class of 15 primary children, I was reminded of something incredibly simple and vital to my mental sanity. One breathe. Doesn’t matter what pose, if I only focus on the inhale 1, 2, 3 and the exhale 1, 2, 3, I can feel peace or calmness. Awareness of the class, the mat, and the children, but, still completely calm- one moment at a time.

Admittadly, I am not yet a meditator of any sort- even though I am thoroughly educated on the benefits…but, just the power of stopping and taking a breathe can be so soothing.  Yoga is about breathe and as a teacher, I have tended to focus on the sequence but, today, maybe I can offer that bit of calmness to a student?

Try it. I will be.
