Focus on Your Breath in Yoga

Keep your eye on the prize, not the label
It’s easy to get distracted in yoga. “Sure you find yourself cursing under your breath when your impossibly lithe teacher asks you to hold that push-up pose for ‘just 12 more breaths,’” shared Suzanne Morrison, author of the new book Yoga Bitch. That’s when you may start thinking, I could get some really cute clothes for this new yoga practice of mine. “In class, you can find yourself focusing less on your breath and more on the label of the tank top on the girl in front of you,” Suzanne went on. “This is actually not the point of yoga." Now that you’ve crossed the threshold into class, don’t cheat yourself out of the experience. With disciplined focus, your breathing will grow full and easy and your body will feel limber and strong". Thanks for the gentle reminder, Suzanne. I teach Fit-Twist yoga dance class Saturdays 9-10 am in Brentwood, 90049. RSVP now. If 3 or more people RSVP, I'll email the details.
