During the closing of a yoga class at Mystic Journey "Namaste" is often stated.
For a teacher and student, Namaste allows two individuals to come together energetically to a place of connection and timelessness, free from the bonds of ego-connection. If it is done with deep feeling in the heart and with the mind surrendered, a deep union of spirits can blossom.
To perform Namaste, we place the hands together at the heart chakra, close the eyes, and bow the head. We bring the hands together at the heart chakra to increase the flow of Divine love. Bowing the head and closing the eyes helps the mind surrender to the Divine in the heart.
I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you which is of truth, of light and of peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me
we are one.
And so I say to you.....Namaste!
