Last weekend I attended yoga workshops at Stillpoint Yoga in London http://www.stillpointyogalondon.com/. The teachers were inspiring, truly trying to live their yoga moment by moment in the “real world”, and like us all, not necessarily succeeding 100% of the time! So there needs to be a constant renewal of intention.
Connection with our breath can help us stay connected to our intention as it helps to draw us into the present moment. Variation in pace and tempo this week, with space for reflection, allows us to notice how we respond when things heat up, but also how we cope when things slow down markedly. Both place demands on our focus and attention but in very different ways. How do we react and adapt? All good stuff in getting to know ourselves just a little better, with open heart, and a healthy dose of humour!
