Meditate

The Tibetan word for meditation (Ghom) means to become familiar with your mind. In Yoga, we use different forms of meditation to cultivate and develop a stronger connection with our higher mind and intuition. If you’re new to meditation then breathwork is a good place to start. Essential oils can also be helpful.
