“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”

Tristana – breath, drishti & vinyasa

Punctuation; articulation of our vinyasa
Remember:  hold in “spaces” in between your inhalations and exhalations
This is your meditation ~ remain present in this moment

Diana’s “Invitation”

How are you going to get to that next level in your practice?

Select a pose or vinyasa that will make a little shift in your practice
~ perhaps more graceful, more mindful
(Student responses:  Remain inspired ~ read ~ get out of your comfort zone)
