This week we will ground ourselves in our intention and bring awareness to the focus of our gaze. We will get curious about how easy or how challenging it may be to settle our eyes when we are challenged in our asana practice and in our daily lives. We will see how the quality of the mind is tied to the ability to focus our gaze, our breath. Our practice is our forever laboratory to learn more about the "self" to help us heal, grow & transform into our most whole, authentic self who is essential goodness, completely unstoppable & absolutely an incredible miracle!
noun- the center of interest or activity.
verb- pay particular attention to.
Be sure to join us Wednesday to noun & verb focus in your practice. We will learn tools to bring more intentional focus to your focus day-to-day and then watch your life change before your eyes. As the saying goes... "what you focus on expands", so where do you choose to place focus?
See you soon!
Love, love, love,
