Yoga Weekly Intention: Patience

Hello powerful friends! Watts is going to be starting a new series of weekly yoga intentions to get us centered and able to dedicate our yoga practices (or personal meditations, or just something to reflect on) to a new intention each week. Yoga instructor Megan will be sharing this intention and reflecting and focusing on it during that week’s yoga classes here at Watts. To start us off, here is our first post on patience:

Patience… a virtue that is not easy.  With daily practice you will begin to train your mind to live in a space of silence/hesitation/stillness/(insert whatever adjective patience means for you).  For me, patience means finding love and appreciation for the current moment.  Letting go of the anticipation of future events, letting go of the frustration of things not going the way I believe they should.  Learning to trust myself, and the universe in that moment.  When we become consumed by wanting more we neglect to see the beauty in the present moment.  If you are always craving more, you’ll find your mind and body unable to relax.

My intention this week, and weeks to follow is to practice patience with myself, my thoughts, my practice, others, and in life in general.  Join me in this intention and find out what adding a bit of patience to your day can make.

Be powerful (and patient) today,

Megan
