How do you allow your intention to guide you in your practice?
How do you use your intention,prayer or wish to support you as you move,breathe & try to find stillness?
Does it help you to go deeper,to soften, to relax ?
To connect to “something deeper within“ …. Your centre ,perhaps ?
That beautiful sweet space within …. Where everything is ok.
Was it worth setting an intention at the beginning of practice or not ?
How do you make the practice your own & use your intention to help you do that ?
The practice has to serve you …. That’s why you pay for classes and courses isn’t it ?
What is it that you really want from your practice ?
Do you know exactly why you are practicing ?
How do you want the practice to help you “shift” your energy or your mood ?
I am a guide. A teacher …...
But I believe that you are too.
You know so much. Deep down you really do.
I simply remind you about stuff that you already know deep inside.
But as a teacher I know that everyone who comes to practice is coming with their own “story” … everyone does not come onto the mat feeling the same.
The practice I share is the same for the class of students but how do you make it your own ?
This is where you focus on the intention you set at the beginning of class.
How are you feeling physically,emotionally & mentaliy?
From that self- inquiry and from a place of being honest with yourself you are invited to adjust the practice to suit & serve your needs today.
So ,if you’ve had a hard day at work or at home …. You can ease up a little and not go into your deepest shapes/poses …. Back off a little . Why not ?
Be gentle with yourself. Be kind.
Maybe don’t do so many “vinyasa” between poses etc.
Take a childs pose a few more times than usual today … Because you can! It’s ok.
If you have more energy & you need to move & sweat a little to shift your mood, then by all means flow a little more.
You have the intensity dial on your practice & I like to remind you of that fact.
You never have to perform or push.
Yes, for sure you will challenge yourself and work intelligently to reach your edge but there is no need ever to force an outcome.
This is a self care,self love practice that is neverending.
