The word chitta in yoga means mental chatter. Shanti Yoga's Rebecca Bayes says it happens to all of us. Her intention with this blog is to share the journey of how to seek adventure in life's lessons.
Bayes says chitta is the stream of thoughts, emotions, images and impressions that circulate in the mind. The goal is to change the reel to one that is more positive and peaceful. She says "how we react to chitta and allow it to affect us is the practice of yoga. The practice is what will shape our lives and experiences."
You can follow her blog on Patch.
