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