To set intentions…
Breathe more. The end.
At the start of every practice, a teacher or student sets an intention. What do you want to achieve today? Why did you come here to practice? Taking the entire 30 day challenge as a practice, it’s time to set some intentions, or goals for the next month.
Goal 1: Power through
I will be able to complete a power class, with all the lunges and warrior poses up high, with no resting.
Goal 2: Invert
I will be able to get into a handstand, unassisted, against a wall.
Goal 3: Focus
I will have the focus necessary to dedicate myself to a running plan designed to get me to run a 10 km
Goal 4: Perspective
I will blog every day about my yoga journey for 30 days.
Goal 5: Pure
I will abstain from meat for all 30 days. NO CHEATING, SARAH.
30 days to achieve these goals. Totally obtainable!
Practice 1/30: Power 4pm with Andrea Spiegel.
Theme: Creating Space. Using breath as a buffer between the observer and the actor. “Yoga has a two page book on how to do this: Breathe more. The end.” I got an “awesome” with the pose where you fold forward, but in triangle? The class was tough on my thighs, like normal, so much sweat, but there was a point where I reached some clarity and the poses got a little easier. I guess I just remembered to breathe more. Really enjoyed the 3 ohms at the start, especially with a majority of masculine voices. So resonant and s p a c i o u s. 🙂
