Ishvara Pranidhana – Surrender – Day 9 – OM

Happy Friday Yogis! We are on the last day of this round of weaving practice of each of the Niyamas into our day. Today we will practice Ishvara Pranidhana / Surrender focusing on the literal translation from Sanskrit – surrender to all-pervading consciousness and its vibration/sound/representation – OM.

Today is also Wildlife Conservation Day. I care about both animals and conservation.. please remember that we all share this world, and consider making a donation to the World Wildlife Fund to help protect endangered animals and their environments!

They show us what's missing in our lives, and how to love ourselves more completely and unconditionally. They connect us back to who we are, and to the purpose of why we're here. - Trisha McCagh

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to practice some OMs for Ishvara Pranidhana Day. OM is pronounced as a very long A-U-M or OOOM, not like “on” with an m. OM is familiar in the East, but often the only exposure for those in the West is at Yoga class. Please see my intro to OM for more info and links for in-depth research. You can do this on your own if you are practiced, or check out this video to learn how to properly OM on your own, or perhaps try this video as a guided meditation.

One thought on “Ishvara Pranidhana – Surrender – Day 9 – OM

  1. Om is so powerful when in a room full of people but because of social distancing it’s been a while since I’ve been to a class. I look forward to those days but for now practicing with headphones helps me focus.
