Managing Strong Emotions, Cultivating Positive Emotions

Breathing in I calm my body. Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment.

Thich Nhat Hanh

In many of the practices of yoga, we learn to slow down the emotions and replace challenging emotions with positive ones. The practices of Bhakti Yoga often called the Yoga of devotion, is also known as the Yoga of cultivating positive, devotional emotions. Chanting, worship, service, and prayer are practices that are engaged in to create or nurture loving emotions and to invoke states of gratitude, humility, awe, forgiveness, and acceptance.
