With Donna Papania, MS, RN, e-RYT
Yogic tradition is rich with wisdom on how one can move into alignment with truth. One feature of this knowledge is sankalpa, or the setting of intentions. Sankalpa is similar to our modern idea of New Year's resolutions. With both, we clarify our purpose and empower ourselves to transform. In this subtle, yet dynamic yoga practice, we will open ourselves into the deepest spaces of our hearts, allowing the desires of our higher self to come to the surface. This will make clear what our Sankalpas are from a soul level. We will clarify and energize our sankalpa with pranayama and ground ourselves into a resolve to live purposefully with a guided meditation. This practice will leave us with a quieted state that is conscious of our own truth and empowered to create a life that aligns with our highest truth.
