    Somewhere towards the end, the words of the Serenity Prayer came to me. Feeling grateful for the spaciousness resonating in my heart at this moment. Thank you.

    Thank you. I am new to meditation and find focusing on the breath difficult. The connecting with the heart helped rope in the wandering mind. Very beautiful. I am very happy that you are teaching at yogaglow.

    I simply could not feel my heartbeat no matter how deeply I concentrated. Initially I found this to be an irritating distraction, but eventually chose to accept what was. I focused instead on the pulse of my breath moving my hand up and down on my chest.

      Hi Simone,
      Good instinct about tuning into the pulse in the breath as it moved your hand. As you focus in this part of the body, you'll start to become aware of a pulse that is deeper than that. It often begins as more of a subtle sense of rhythm than as something you can actually hear, but as you tune in, you begin to recognize it, and it becomes a pathway you can follow into the inner heart.
