Setting an Intention

July 23, 2010

"Contortionist 1" by my dearest, beautiful and talented, Maggie Mull.

The way you approach coming to a yoga class definitely informs your experience in the class. When I am excited and energized by the prospect of taking class, I feel strong on the mat. When I am dreading class or my mind is whirling (chitta vritti), it is a struggle to practice.  I love taking class at Jivamukti because the chanting and dharma talk at the beginning give me ample time to get my mind in the right place before starting the asana practice.  Sharon and David always stress the importance of the intention behind every action.  Asana practice is no different.  You will get out of it what you want to get out of it, what you set your mind to getting out of it.  And like that, practicing yoga has infinite possibilities.
