From Julie Rappaport: "Setting an intention for each yoga session increase mental focus and creates a vibrant practice. Intentions can be general or specific, abstract or concrete. For example: "my intention today is to make peace with myself (or a specific other) both in my practice and throughout the day" or "let me complete one hour of yoga practice". You might think of them as little [wishes] or prayers sprinkled over your practice time."
For the next few weeks take a moment when you arrive on your mat or cushion to deeply consider why you are there and what you hope from your practice that day - then notice how the sankalpa acts as a guidepost or anchor both in your practice and in your life.
