Namaste my fellow yogi/yoginis!
My favorite time of the year is just around the corner–Fall! It is the perfect time to contemplate how prosperity is manifesting in your life right here, right now. The universe, your physical body, your mental thoughts, the objects and people that surround you, abundance both given and received, are energy bound in different forms. This month we will be exploring prosperity and abundance, both physically and energetically, via our hips and mantra.
Mantra is a repeated word or phrase that is meaningful or sacred to the practitioner. Mantra can elevate or modify consciousness, through meaning, sound, rhythm, tone, and reflexology of the tongue against the palate of the mouth. Mantra helps us connect with, and embody, positive, meaningful, or sacred energy. One of my favorite mantras we will be working with this month is “Om Gum Ganapataye Namaha.” This mantra invokes the energy of Ganesha, the elephant-headed deity who is known as the Remover of Obstacles and the Lord of Beginnings. Ganesha helps clear the way for success and abundance to flow more readily in our lives. Below is a brief video clip of me working with this particular mantra. And, just in case you were wondering–after watching the clip–mantra can also be silent! Chanting or singing out loud is always optional.
See you on the mat!
