Karuna Yoga

  • In a world that often glorifies busy-ness and productivity, it can be challenging to slow down and be present in the moment. Here are some tips for doing less and feeling more in your yoga practice:
  • Set an intention: Before you begin your practice, take a few moments to set an intention for your practice. This could be something as simple as “I want to feel calmer and centered,” or “I want to connect with my breath.” Setting an intention helps to create a sense of purpose and focus for your practice.
  • Focus on your breath: The breath is a powerful tool for bringing your attention back to the present moment. Try to focus on your breath as you move through your practice, noticing the sensation of the breath in your body and using it to anchor your awareness in the present.
  • Simplify your practice: Instead of trying to do every pose perfectly, focus on a few key poses and explore them in depth. This allows you to really feel the effects of the pose and connect with your body on a deeper level.
  • Embrace stillness: Sometimes the most powerful moments in a yoga practice come when we’re simply sitting or lying still. Allow yourself to fully relax in savasana or other restorative poses, and notice the sensations in your body and mind.
  • Practice self-compassion: Remember that yoga is not about perfection or achieving a certain outcome. Be kind to yourself, honor your body’s limitations, and practice with a sense of curiosity and exploration rather than judgment or criticism.
  • By doing less and feeling more in your yoga practice, you can cultivate a deeper sense of presence, awareness, and connection with your body and mind.
