Sometimes you just have to stop. You may be  in traffic or you are in a line or you are just stuck. You are forced to pause. But how do you learn how to pause with out being forced into it?

First, you have to believe there is value in taking a moment. Knowing it  is important and that there is power in pausing.

You will not always be able to come to a supportive bridge pose with a catspaw cushion but stopping and following your breath is always available. Following your breath is the quickest way for you or your team to come to focus, get centered and grounded.

Now you are practicing the power of the pause.

But, sometimes the hard work is seating with difficult emotions.  Learning to pause is an important skill to practice.

Working hard can mean being still  – what does it take for you to be still?

How do you practice pausing?

A simple answer is to sit, take a breath in and on the exhale put down your phone, tablet or lap top.

Take another breath in and exhale.

Repeat. You are now pausing.

I can tell you, you need certain things in your corner or room but what you really need to is to schedule yourself time to sit and be with your breath.
