When I focus on my breath in yoga, I visualize the sea.
Breathe in, waves recede.
Breathe out, waves wash the shoreline.
Its natural rhythm calms me, draws me into the moment, and brings with it all the soothing qualities of the beach.
It is a reminder to slow down and go with the flow, to let go and ride the waves, so to speak.
The ocean is my motivation, my inspiration.
