“Our intention becomes our reality” – Wayne Dyer. This statement is powerful, but it can also be confusing. What is an intention? How does it become real? As a yoga instructor, I often encourage students to set an intention at the beginning of a practice. For me, this simply means to identify a word or phrase that you will focus on, so that it can become your reality for that yoga practice and hopefully beyond. So that even if your daily life feels scattered, for the 30 minutes you practice, you can focus on the intention of “calm”. Doesn’t that sound wonderful – and simple?
