What does rise mean to you? To stand up evenly on my own two feet and radiate and share what I believe in. How about to shine on? To be the light that I am and to fully be myself because when I fully express myself it gives other permission to freely do the same.
Practicing on this Affirmat gives me a constant reminder to breathe gently and move gracefully. I love the rugged vibe this mat has; it is as comfortable as your favorite worn in T-shirt. Every time I lay this mat out to practice yoga and meditation my husky, Blue, lays directly on top of it, he is just as in love with it as I am. Another wonderful fact about this mat is that it is biodegradable and ergonomically friendly. As a yoga and barre instructor the act of sharing and giving to others is one of main purposes of teaching, so re-nourishing myself with the same is essential. This gift was given to me at an event I went to and it has become my home practice mat. The color of it, the writing on it and the feel of it is simple yet sweet. A little touch of inspiration each day goes a long way!
