Yoga and Creativity by Laura Rothstein

My teacher, Parvathi Nanda Nath, has taught me that a quiet mind is not a dull and static mind; it is brilliant and creative mind.      In my experience, I have found that ideas abound and my imagination heightens in business and family during the depths of  my yoga practice.    The space that my yoga practice creates for me  in mind, body, and spirit allows Shakti, the creative flow of the universe,  to move  unobstructively.  When there is a unconflicted path for Shakti to flow, the combination of clarity, wisdom and beauty seems to manifest in something new that has value to me and perhaps others.    Staying fully present through breath awareness and meditation increases the spaces between thoughts, between what  is “known” , and  creativity emerges separate from the thinking mind.   Namaste – Laura


“We are what we think.
All that we are arises
With our thoughts.
With our thoughts,
We make our world.”
