I took a yoga class today at Miami Yogashala. Our teacher guided us through the Vinyasa Flow class as usual- combining traditional ashtanga poses with a powerful style developed by the Director, Fred Bush. But this time, as we lay in “Shivasana” (or corpse pose) at the end of the hour-and-a-half session, she sang a mantra. Her voice was beautiful– sweet, haunting. I felt a stir deep inside– an opening where I could hide for a while surrounded by light and peace. And, I remembered, again, why I am compelled to turn to yoga– particularly in times of stress or doubt. Yoga is simply The Way.
