How often have you stepped off the mat after a yoga class only to find that your stresses immediately return? That is unfortunately common, but a simple step can help you use your practice to transform your life.
Before you step onto your mat, set an intention. Your intention will be a quality or virtue upon which you want to focus your attention, both in your yoga practice and in your life. A few examples are being present, inner strength, or patience. Setting your intention makes it easier for you to connect what you do on the mat with what you do outside of the studio by giving you a center focus point of positivity upon which to fixate throughout the day.
Take the time today to set an intention for your practice and your life. Choose somewhere you would like to improve, and keep it on the forefront of your mind. This can make it possible to take not just your practice—but your whole life—to a better place.
Your yoga practice has the power to transform your life, and setting your intention can unlock that power. To learn more about how yoga, Pilates, and dance classes can help you become your best self, contact One Body Studios in La Habra, California.
