Living a Mindful Life Lesson 1: Just Beathe
http://www.raffayoga.com/ (my favorite teacher is Pam) and Lotus Fire Yoga: http://www.lotusfireyoga.com/ (Joanie is my instructor of choice). If you can't make it to a full class or can't afford the $15 a pop, another great way to have a practice is on line at http://www.yogatoday.com/. This is a free service and I have done some great classes. Just set up your computer and your mat & you are really for that first downward dog of the day. So, I use my yoga breath when things get a bit frenzied. Closing my eyes and breathing slowly and thoughtfully not only reduces my stress but also brings me back to what is really important at that moment. So today, when you feel scattered, simply close your eyes and breath.
