Creating Sacred Space

images

Think about your practice. The sights, the smells, sounds. What kind of furniture is around? Are there windows? What does the room or space look like? Is there a candle or incense burning? Are there plants? Creating a space that is clear and dedicated to your practice is very important. It is a space that encourages the cultivation of peaceful stillness; a space where time is irrelevant, and the mind can be at peace. It can be an entire room dedicated to yoga and your spiritual practice, or a small space in the living room or bedroom. We all have different needs for different spaces. Our world revolves around spaces and what they help support in our day to day lives.

I encourage you to look at the spaces surrounding you, and find a way to carve in something that reminds you to be still. A shelf with a candle or incense and your favorite book. A corner in the bedroom where you can reflect on your day in gratitude, or a prayer spot in the kitchen. Make it meaningful and unique to you and your practice. It serves as a daily reminder to pause, reflect, and honor yourself and the world we live in.

Namaste

I am an eclectic woman in my late, yeah, late, twenties who LOVES a good book, strong tea/coffee, and loud music. Writing is the expression of the soul. As a yoga instructor my focus is always on proper alignment of the asana, stability of the pranayama, and stillness of the mind. My intention is to share my passion and love for books and reading with wonderful people everywhere. May you all live beautifully and authentically. Namaste
