I practice a little at home but I find the discipline of the class to be more beneficial for me. Some days, the most I manage at home is my fifteen minute stretches before I get out of bed and fifteen minutes later in the day. I know it's not enough but I am taking the advice of people who know better than me and just 'doing' it how and when I can.
Yesterday, we did our full routine of warm up,various asanas/postures and relaxation. It was a little different this week as we also chanted the various sounds that go along with each pose. I hadn't had that experience before and it felt really good. As we made the sounds, drawing each one out, I could feel the response in various parts of my body.
I also want to do the candle meditation regularly. I loved when our teacher taught us how to do that. It's just the most amazing feeling, staring at the candle, then the flame, and closing the eyes until the red dot can be seen. If we are also chanting the OM sound, I can feel the vibrations tingling through my body.
I used to laugh at the idea of people sitting around, meditating and chanting OM but now I get it! I was positively tingling with life afterwards and felt like a new woman!
I want to feel the OM everyday now!
