Why do we bow at the end of class?
Updated: Sep 4, 2018
It is very common that we bow at the end of a yoga class. But what is it we bow to? It is not something external, it's a nod to our personal internal brilliance. It's an opportunity to turn your awareness within at the close of your practice, express gratitude or acknowledgement of the dedication to deepen your own self knowledge. You bow to your own inner wisdom, to the teacher within, or my personal favorite, you bow to your creative wisdom within. It is all knowing, it is already fully present in us, and it reveals itself to us when we open our heart to it.
