#YJInfluencer: 10 Top Teachers Share their go-to mantras

FEATURE ON YOGA JOURNAL

Ben Sears, yoga teacher and founder & CEO of LUXYOGA

MANTRA: Spread love and kindness.

WHY: While I practice Sanskrit mantras, at the recent behest of my Ayurveda teacher (who grew up on an ashram in India), I have also begun to create mantras in my own language. Yoga is about optimizing well-being and using the body as vehicle to begin to observe the mind, ultimately preparing you for deeper reflection. Chants with religious themes may not be accessible to many people. Over many years of teaching, I’ve found students respond well to doing serious inner work in a lighthearted way, and one of the greatest gifts of a practice is the feeling that everything is going to be OK, it’s alright to chuckle, and we’re all in this together.

Ben Sears, a competitive athlete who used yoga to heal from two herniated discs and five knee surgeries, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that Longstaff’s experience is exactly what yoga prepares you for. “Focus on breath diverts attention away from the struggle and makes effort more sustainable,” Sears says. “The purpose of Yoga, or any focused practice that combines physical health with self-inquiry, is to develop the patience and resilience to literally keep you afloat in times of trouble.”
