Yoga is my church

Last week, I spent time promoting the new CorePower Fremont studio among the fine employees of Charles Schwab, most entirely new to yoga. I found it interesting how many times I explained that I practice yoga for its mental versus physical benefits.

Flexibility doesn’t cross my mind. Composure, gratitude, awareness and mental stillness keep me coming back. Because yoga makes me a better person, there’s something spiritual about it for me. While intentionally non-dogmatic, CorePower nods to this spirituality at the end of every class with its closing “namaste,” meaning, “I bow to the Divine in you.”

The Divine in you. This week, my classes will encourage you to be aware of it, and be in awe of it.
