I recently dipped into TKV Desikachar's Heart of Yoga, and found myself reading about Isvarapranidhana. I have been using it this week for my class theme, working with this idea of renouncing our desire for the fruits of our actions. Rather, valuing the spirit and quality with which we act, directing our energy and attention there. The rest will simply take care of itself. A great focus for our practice which we can take with us when we leave the mat, and little by little, hopefully start living it.
