My yoga practice is essential to my life.
It helps me to center my restless thoughts and connect my mind, body, and spirit.
Yoga is a channel to my spiritual energy.
I start each day with an intention in mind. Through prayer and meditation, I spend a few minutes connecting to my spirit and focusing on my intention. Through yoga, I begin to practice my intention by Receiving Positive energy and Releasing negativity.
As I inhale and lift the chest towards the sky, I am opening my heart towards my source to receive Spiritual energy. As I exhale and drop my head towards the Earth, I am letting go, releasing my physical limitations. This concept of lifting and lowering the chest are the basis for most of the yoga movements in my practice.
The breath is what connects the movement and intention. With each opening breath, I am receiving Love, Joy, Peace and Grace. With each exhale, I am releasing Fear, Anxiety, Tension, and any other form of negative energy that I need to let go of.
Since beginning this daily practice, I have had so much more peace, energy, and focus throughout my entire day. This helps me with communicating with people at work, focusing and being present in dance class, and even being more mindful in the quiet, in between moments.
My Yoga Practice helps me with every single aspect of performing. As I am singing, dancing, and acting, I am mindful of my intention, breath, and focus. As a daily practice, I am reaching a higher level each day. Things that used to be difficult to perform, I can now do with ease because I’m able to shift my mindset and let go of the fearful, anxious thoughts that tell me I cannot do it.
