As a culture, we tend to value multitasking and staying busy. But the practice of yoga provides us with an opportunity to reduce this dissipation of our energies. While practicing, notice if your attention wanders out of your body and into a dialogue about your experience, which detracts from the experience itself. Instead, let yourself feel your practice more potently by keeping your attention vigilantly focused on sensation. There is no right, wrong, good, or bad—these are your mind’s stories. Strengthening the muscle of attention will deepen your practice and spill over into all areas of your life in beautiful ways.
