Monday Mantra - July 29th

“I trust the presence of the universe in my life.”

Happy Monday yogis! We are on the home stretch for mercury in retrograde. Wooohoo! As it begins to rotate the correct direction at the end of this week, we must begin to sort through our problems that came up during retrograde. Anything we held off from saying or doing, it’s time to bloom from this time of rest and focus and get ourselves ready to move full speed ahead

On your mat, do a slower practice, close down your eyes for the practice, focus in on who you are and what your inner light is guiding you too. This guide can be your next step, what confrontations need facing or just being fully present in your full body. Use this practice as a moving meditation, flowing where your inner light guides you and end your practice feeling fully refreshed and with clear intentions of the next step.

Off your mat, I invite you to perform activities that fill you up. Drink coffee with a book, garden, dance in your kitchen to your favorite album. That one thing that makes you happy, whatever it means to you. Give yourself that euphoric feeling. Let this one thing be your go to to channel the inner universe and bring you back into your body. Practice this anytime you need to revisit your true self.

-Namaste, Michi P.
