It begins even before that; the truth is the practice never really starts or ends.
It is woven into how we live
How we treat one another
How we react
How we show up
But let’s talk in the context of this sacred space.
It is how you open the door
How you walk across the room
And especially how you place down your mat
Every action should be performed being mindful of the bodies around you
The people inside of them
And the vulnerability that comes from lying on the ground in a room full of strangers with your eyes closed
So please, come in
But walk with grace
Roll out your mat carefully
Be aware of where you place your props
Preserve the silence; maybe the only moment of your day that is filled with quiet
And dive into the peace that comes from being intentional and riding the wave of a room full of breath and stillness.
