Positive affirmations are a big part of my yoga practice. In the traditional yoga language of Sanskrit, the word is mantra. Its root is the word man (which means to think) and the suffix is –tra (meaning tool or instrument). So, a mantra is literally a tool or instrument to help one think. I already know how to think negative and harmful thoughts. My mantras help me to focus on the positive.
