Being Grounded

For me, I tend to find a sense of being grounded, calmness and inner peace through the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. The practice helps me focus on what my body is feeling, and on quieting my mind through the sound of my breathing (Ujay breathing), and through the various poses I take my body through. Not to mention that it helps me stretch, which I don't always remember to do after workouts! Learning to understand what that calmness feels like allows me to draw from that experience when I'm going about my daily life, chores, work, errands, and races. Actually before every race, I usually will give myself time to practice Ujay breathing to help quiet my racing nerves!
