There is an unmistakable sound a human being makes when they surrender to their breath.

When their set intention is to breathe and be present with it. When they experience, fully, the rise and fall of the body and surrender to the waves that come and go.

This sound kept me teaching for a decade, the simple sound of a being coming home to themselves.

To create this sound, they cannot be in their thoughts. They have to be present in the comings and goings of what is in this very moment.

They have to release the judgments and continuous chatter in their mind. We aim to achieve this state as we challenge the nervous system with the poses.

Within this challenge, we cultivate a peaceful mind.

I get so excited about hearing this sound because I know when it arrives. If they can find it here on the mat, they hold the potential for the actual practice of yoga, which extends beyond the mat and into their lives and, essentially, into the world around them.
