yoga practice: six days this week. our friday night meeting will count as one practice…get 2 more in the studio.

meditation practice: keep practicing sitting for 5-15 minutes. notice your body, your breath and the space around you. notice the thoughts that arise for you.

use your hands as an anchor. anytime you find yourself wandering off, just bring your awareness back to your hands and start again to notice your body, your breath and the space around you.
