Yoga, and staying aware

January 20, 2010

As I'm getting ready to move again soon, I found myself paying great attention to my yoga instructor's words during class last night. At one point she said something like this: "A part of yoga is about spreading your awareness throughout your body. So when you're in a pose, don't think about just the part we seem to be working on, but also go back and check your other body parts. Are your feet planted firmly on the floor? Is your weight balanced evenly? Are you maintaining length in your stretches? How is your breathing? Is your face relaxed?"

I thought this was pretty cool, and as I will soon be without a teacher, I wanted to write this here for my own memory.
