Centering to Begin your Yoga Practice

Come to a Comfortable Position:  Seated  (Easy, Half Lotus, Lotus Position), Laying back in Corpse Pose, Standing in Mountain Pose (Tadasana) or Child’s Pose (Balasana).

Settle in, Close your Eyes and begin to take a few slow, full deep breaths.

When you are ready, begin to transition to Dirga Pranayama

Inhale and exhale through your nose.

Fill your Belly Ribs and Chest with Air on the Inhale.

Allow your Chest, Ribs and Belly to contract on the Exhale.

Begin to let everything from the outside world slip away.

Give yourself permission to be present here in this space and this time.

After a few Minutes set an Intention or Affirmation for your Practice.
