Tap into your connection with the universe to discover endless possibility with this practice designed by Sarah Platt-Finger, co-founder of ISHTA Yoga in New York City and Deepak Chopra’s yoga teacher. The physical poses and purifying breathing technique can dissolve stress and align you physically and mentally, leaving you open to experiencing higher consciousness, or a sense of inspiration, awe, pure joy, peace, liberation, love, and hope. As you practice, visualize electromagnetic energy moving through you with each breath. Be mindful of your mind-body connection and how it allows you to feel open, expansive, and at one with everything around you. In each pose, reflect on how you, at your root, are consciousness. Remind yourself:

“I am That, You are That, and All This is That.”
