Namaste

Hello Friends!

I remember the first ever yoga class I went to, when after a few blissful minutes in savasana the teacher asked us to keep our eyes closed and sit up. To my surprise she, along with many others in the class started chanting “OM” and finished up by bowing her head saying “Namaste”. Her calm intention seemed to fill the room.



Namaste



On this first occasion, I was caught somewhere between really wanting to join in and feeling somewhat intimidated. The next class I timidly chanted “OM” along with my fellow yogis and sent back a quiet “Namaste” as the class ended. From those early days, chanting and other class ending rituals have become one of the things I really look forward to and something I find extra special about my yoga sessions.


I often find myself focusing on the real meaning of “Namaste” and what beautiful sentiment it carries, it’s so much more than just a word.


Namaste, to me, is about seeing good in others and appreciating all the good in yourself. It’s a message of positivity and involves looking beyond the surface. Whether chanting is your thing or not, I think we could all take time to be kinder to ourselves and more accepting towards others. Maybe before reacting in a negative way, we take a breath before speaking, just enough time to consider the situation with a broader view.


It can be so refreshing to break a pessimistic habit with small actions and it can have a real knock on effect. Notice the positive things in your day, enjoy the small moments that make you happy and most of all, take that extra second to realise how truly awesome you are.


You there, you're awesome
