Bringing a little more yogic mindfulness into my world

14 June 2014


A few weeks ago I made the intention to bring a little more yogic mindfulness into my job life and my home life. Because I wasn't able to spend as much time at the studio or on my mat I had to think of ways to bring the calm that I feel on my mat out into my life. The thing is...this is much easier said than done. When I'm on my mat I'm on my mat entirely - I'm completely focused on creating space in my body and my mind. Same goes with meditation - focusing on creating space from my thoughts and being the observer. The rest of life however can be far more challenging; distractions everywhere, energy sappers, the ever present temptation to check out... the list goes on.
As is the way with the Universe, Om Yoga Magazine stepped in and just a few days after making the intention I came across their latest issue with an article aptly titled 'Sneaky Office Yoga'. Three steps to bring some deeper yogic awareness to your desk.

Breathe.

Listen.

Connect.

When I bring myself back to these things, when I strip away all the bull shit and the drama and return to the present moment, I can see the magic in the world. I can see the magic in my life as easy as the light of day.
It's when I am in the past or the future, that I suffer. In this moment I have everything I need. And that is magic my gorgeous friends.
