What is yoga?

Why we say 'Namaste' at the end of our yoga practice?

Derived from Sanskrit, 'Namaste' is much more than just a greeting – it's an expression of respect, gratitude, and connection. When we say 'Namaste,' we honor the divine light within ourselves, as well as acknowledging the same divine light shining within others.

'Namaste' encompasses the belief that we are all connected, bridging the gap between individuals and fostering a sense of unity and oneness. It reminds us that we are not separate, but part of a greater whole.

By saying 'Namaste,' we celebrate not only our own journey but also acknowledge the journeys of those practicing alongside us. It's a beautiful way to honor the shared energy and collective mindfulness of the yoga community.

So, the next time you hear 'Namaste,' let it resonate deep within you – recognizing and celebrating the divine within yourself and everyone around you.

We are excited to have you join our yoga community. If you have any other questions or concerns, please reach out to us.
