Ahimsa and Finding Peace
This hatha practice by Mara Branscombe is all about self care, compassion and peace.
While practicing yoga, we may naturally witness thoughts inside us that are rooted in negativity, separation, anxiety and fear. Yoga reminds us how to listen, pause, take a breath, and let go. When we act and embody Ahimsa (non-harming) we emit harmonious vibrations, therefore encouraging others to live peacefully as well.Embodying a state or a feeling of Ahimsa while we are on our mats creates a powerful channel for attuning to our most peaceful self.
This practice supports the gathering of self care and compassion with meditation, mudra, mantra, and a peaceful warrior sequence for shoulders, hips, quadriceps, and spine.
