Student Commentary: “. . . greater calm, patience, and kindness towards myself and those around me.”

Practicing yoga and mindfulness has not only given me greater strength, flexibility, and balance but also greater calm, patience, and kindness towards myself and those around me. As the stresses of life pile up, or the shorter days of winter descend, I am much better able to notice, to smile, and to respond in a positive way. I also find myself applying yoga postures throughout my day – when bending over or reaching for something, when gardening, even when just sitting. The payoff is well worth the practice!”
