Teachers often advise students to start their practice by setting an intention. Ask yourself:
What do I want to see more of in my life?
Once you find the answer, you can set an intention to use the energy of your yoga practice to make it real. For example, you might want to see more flexibility in your body and mind, and so you set an intention to work toward that goal. You might want to dedicate your practice to creating peace in all your relationships. Or perhaps it’s as simple as setting the intention to step onto your mat. You don’t have to have a plan for what to do once you get there. Remember, sometimes just showing up is the catalyst for transformation.
