The Sanskrit word atha (अथ) is a special word. It means “now”.

It calls our attention to the present moment. It teaches us the importance of not thinking about the past and not worrying about the future. Embrace every moment and make the most of it!

In the present moment we can access our intuitive wisdom. Here we can find our own inner guru that will guide us on the path of Yoga.

When you come back to your true self, you practice atha. You practice being in the here and now. Here lies the solution, the power of the soul, the power to understand and the power to be. Here and now is where Yoga begins.

 

Presence. Mindfulness. Consciousness.
