Om Shanti

At the end of every yoga class, the very last thing I say, before I thank my students for attending, are the words "Om Shanti."

"Om Shanti" is essentially a prayer for peace. "Om" represents the sacred sound of the universe. And "Shanti" means "peace."

When I say it, I encourage you to say it back to me. Together, we wish for peace in our world, peace in our communities, peace in our families, peace in our lives, peace within ourselves . . .

Om Shanti.
