Intention

September 9, 2011

Thet heme for the lessons this coming week is “Intention”.  Setting an intention for your yoga practice requires an awareness of yourself and your current situation.  The first step in setting an intention is to observe the state of your body, breath, mind and spirit. An intention can be quite simple, such as, “I want to relax and unwind after a difficult day in the office” or “I want relief from a stiff shoulder or neck”. Alternatively an intention can be more complex, such as, “I want to work on a challenging posture to give me more confidence”. Be specific and keep the intention concrete.  This will help you maintain focus in your yoga practice.  You can practice the same pose every day for years, and by applying intentions, have a different experience every time you practice.

When enrolling for a course of yoga lessons  it may be your  intention to attend every week.  However, this may not always bge possible due to family or work commitments.  This term I have added a further class at Wilmslow High School on a Monday evening. This will enable students to swop classes locally between the Wilmslow and Alderley Edge should the need arise more easily.  Classes take place in Wilmslow, Cheshire on a Monday and Thursday and in Alderley Edge on a Wednesday.
