It’s not just a coincidence that we’re encouraged to set a Sankalpa for each practice—our yoga practice can feel much more productive when we have something to focus on. But we usually set an emotional or spiritual intention rather than a physical one. Can you think of a time you dedicated a yoga practice to working on strengthening or releasing a specific body part? If not, we’re here to encourage you to change that!
Many of us carry stress and tension in the upper body and anger and trauma in the lower body. Just by paying special attention to specific parts of our body we can release these negative emotions and past experiences and open ourselves up to positivity.
