At the end of my yoga practice, everyone in the class puts their hands together at the heart chakra, close their eyes, and bow their heads. The gesture alone represents "Namaste" but we also say the word out loud. According to  Yoga Journal, "The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another." Namaste actually literally means, I bow to you, but I love the quote below from spiritual leader, Ram Dass. It is a wonderful sentiment to keep in mind no matter where life takes you.
