How Yoga Reminds Me to Say ‘Thank You’ More Often

Yoga is a gratitude practice I am so grateful for. This is why.

A sign that says, “Begin each day with a grateful heart,” is one of the first things I look at in the morning.

“Thank you” are some of the first words I taught my children when they were babies, and they’re the two words they use most frequently now.


Gratitude begins with you, mama, and when you express it, it creates a ripple effect of appreciation for yourself and others. We are all responsible for our own gratitude.


In addition to my kids, yoga is my reminder to be grateful every day. It’s a direct connection with spirit, and it enhances my awareness of the goodness already around us.


As an everyday reminder to practice gratitude, my yoga mat is rolled out at the foot of my bed. Who needs a red carpet when you have a yoga mat? A home yoga practice is not judgmental, and no one is looking.


What do you cherish most in your life? Start creating your own ripple effect of gratitude so that you can pave the way for others to do the same.


Thank you.
