Gratitude and Thanksgiving

Namaste’ is an expression of connection and deep gratitude. I end every class saying Namaste’ and enjoy the feeling of connection to the class, and beyond. Gratitude and giving thanks is the core of mindfulness and yoga practice. As Thanksgiving approaches I’m reminded of the meaning of Namaste’ and of the practice of gratitude.

Cultivating a practice of thankfulness and gratitude can lead to a greater connection to life. Gratitude is a way of looking at things. Gratitude can teach you to look at the full spectrum of life, from the highs to the lows.

Gratitude doesn’t have to be limited to a yoga practice. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for family and friends to gather and reflect on the blessings in life. After the pie, and sweet potatoes, after the family, continue the tradition and set aside 5 minutes each day, and reflect on what you are thankful for everyday.

For everything we give Thanks.

Namaste’ and Happy Thanksgiving
