Close to Om: Unite

You might say Andrea's emphasis in AWAKEN and TRANSFORM is mind and body whereas on this leg of our journey we UNITE with spirit. In the final episode of Andrea Marcum's series Close to Om, we UNITE with our highest, greatest self and see that yoga is our path towards purpose, intelligence, empathy and loveā€¦ both within ourselves and towards everything around us. Andrea uses restorative postures and metta meditation to discover that our journey is about turning inward ultimately so that we can reach out.

I've practiced with this series before and enjoyed it. But after having to drive for 200 miles yesterday, it was even MORE perfect for getting closer to Om!! Thank you. :-)

200 miles will definitely have you ready to UNITE with some OM :) Thanks a million for reaching out and for being part of our Gaia family! xx A

Tonite, I did this practice for the 4th or 5th time. Each time it gets better as I quiet my mind quicker and can really sink into the meditative bliss. So grateful for your thoughtful practices. The series is amazing. I am so excited to hear you are coming out with a book! I don't know if you ever make it to Vancouver but maybe if you tour with your book you will. Would love to practice with you in person! Namaste.

Really pleased that you are enjoying the Close To OM series! And coming to Vancouver with my book would be a dream come true! I'll keep you posted! xx A

Yes! Please do! I live on the Sunshine Coast and would love to get you to our little yoga community here.
Tonite must have been my 10-12 time now practicing with this video. This is my go to restorative program. Perfect tonite as I returned from a 5 day road trip. Thank you.

Tonight, i was needing a practice to ease into the New Moon Sadhana. With a grateful heart, I connected & am ready to dedicate this evening in quiet retrospection.
Many thanks, Love Only, LCP

This is the best! Deeply honored that you found quiet introspection and a grateful heart. Thank you for practicing Close To OM with me! xx A

I just love your power vinyasa. Even those times when I think to myself in the morning, "Ah, I just don't think I have an Andrea in me today" . . . every time I'm done I'm so glad a let a little Andrea in :) Namaste

I hope you are also enjoying the restorative side of things. This Close To OM series is designed to be a soup with contemplative, nurturing and fiery elements. I know for me the fire and spice were easier for me to dive into when I first started practicing as I've been athletic all my life. It was the quieter stuff that rocked my world, though... the insight into balance - progress vs. punishment. Yoga is so amazing because it offers us what we need when we need it. Thank you so much for practicing with me! xx A

Enjoyable in every bit! I could as well have stayed in the postures a week each. This is a class i will return to and share with my loved ones!

Spiritual guacamole on toast is the bomb! So glad you enjoyed every bite! xx A

Thank you Andrea for such a beautiful mindful practice. I feel emotions coming up and release them with every out breath. I'm so grateful to yoga and practices like this. It is meditation and yes I feel more united inside and to the outside. Thank you again. Om

andreamarcum, posted on April 29, 2016

Your words here are so important to me! Meditation is such an important part of my own personal practice, and UNITEing -- first within our self and then with one another is, to my mind, the pot of gold. This Close To OM series is particularly important to me, as is it a snippet of the book I will be releasing in 2017. Stay tuned and thank you from the bottom of my heart for practicing with me here on Gaia! xx A

This was the BEST restorative practice I've found yet! The pace was perfect, just enough commentary but not too much. Beautiful meditation at the end. In essense, the perfect beginning to my day! So much gratitude.
