This month, I (and everyone in the yoga world, it seems) am reflecting on the theme of gratitude. You can reflect on gratitude in meditation as well as express it through asana. I am incorporating both into my classes, having students set an intention of gratitude and ending the class silently noting that for which each of us is grateful. Poses that open the heart, like anahatasana (or puppy dog pose) as well as forward folds, like humble warrior can exemplify gratitude in our asana practice.
What are you grateful for?
