Set Your Intention!

In Tadasana (Mountain Pose)

If you are practicing yoga postures (asanas) on a consistent (3-6 days a week) basis you may have a tendency to copy results and not be in the moment. Setting your intention before and during your practice can be a very powerful tool in keeping you present. It’s a conscious way of integrating the mental (Raja) aspects of yoga with the physical (Hatha).

Here are a few suggestions to help you make your intentions personal.

  1. Physically: “Today I will focus on my balance, rooting into the floor and extending to the earth.”
  2. Mentally: Today I will be mentally Flexible, letting go of fear, scarcity, doubt, and experience freedom.
  3. Spiritually: Today I will focus the subtle energy of Prana and Shakti. Awakening that energy up my spine and feel empowered!
