00:26:41,670 –> 00:26:43,920
the nutrients of your practice to seep

452
00:26:43,920 –> 00:26:47,150

deal by saying namaste which is honoring

457
00:27:18,020 –> 00:27:20,120
the best and most beautiful version of

458
00:27:20,120 –> 00:27:22,180
ourselves

459
00:27:22,180 –> 00:27:26,330

460
00:27:26,330 –> 00:27:31,280

461
00:27:31,280 –> 00:27:37,220
