A deep Shavasana in one of our Shiva Power® classes here in Cabo in my Shiva Yoga 200hr Teacher Training program. I love supporting these students on this journey.

I was talking yesterday before class in my Dharma talk about how fast we are moving and how much we are running — always so busy, so many distractions. We are making our lives so complicated.

Experience the true nature of your Self.
