Giving your yoga practice a theme or intention in the form of a word, phrase, or idea flavors your time on the mat, giving the practice focus and direction. It anchors your mind to your body, helping you to experience a greater connection throughout your practice. With a theme, you have a thread to tie your practice together from start to finish.
You can choose any theme that’s meaningful to you to guide you to a deeper practice. Sometimes similar words or ideas can inspire vastly different yoga practices, and that’s why I enjoy exploring my time on the mat from various viewpoints.
It’s easy to get stuck in a few themes: love, peace, relaxation. These are wonderful (and they are each explored here), but you’ll have richer experiences if you continue to seek other ways of looking at your practice.
