Sankalpa.

I attended Lindsey’s class at Orange Sky Yoga last week right before Christmas and she discussed sankalpa, which is the Sanskrit work for ‘intention’ or ‘purpose’.  It’s the time of year when people start to set New Year’s resolutions (myself included), however a sankalpa is deeper than a resolution.  The effect of sankalpa is to awaken the willpower within yourself through the practice of yoga. 

Let’s set a sankalpa the next time we step onto our yoga mat.  Keep it simple and let that intention plant a seed which we can carry with us into 2013.
