There’s a quote from Louise Hay that says, “How you start your day is how you live your day. How you live your day is how you live your life.” This morning intention yoga flow was created exactly with that idea in mind. We’re going to start our day with a yoga flow to set our intentions; to feel good mentally, physically, and emotionally; to carry those positive, empowered, and strong feelings into the rest of our days.
This full-body vinyasa flow class is the perfect way to start your day the way that you want to feel. We will build some energy and heat within the body as we flow through this 30-minute class. You know that I’m all about moving mindfully and with intention, which we’ll definitely still be incorporating into this class.
Setting the Intention
Now, before we get to the class, I want you to take some time to think about the intention you want to set for the day ahead. Your intention is like a seed that you’re planting in your garden. If you want that plant to grow, you have to start by planting the seed; then you have to nurture, care for, and water the seed. Our practice today is the act of nurturing the seed. We’re showing our bodies, minds, and souls, that we know we’re worthy and deserving of this time to care for ourselves so the seeds can grow and flourish.
Examples of Morning Intentions
So what can these intentions look like? I’m all about journaling as I believe it truly allows us to tap into our subconscious level, to know what we truly desire, what may be holding us back, and how to work through it all. If you have the time, spend some time journaling and connecting with yourself on a truly deep level. You may (or may not) be surprised by what comes up for you and how this helps you to determine the intention you want to set. Remember, your intention is to plant the seed for how you want to feel and what you want to cultivate in your life.
I will take the small steps that get me closer to my goals.
I accept myself as enough.
I will make time for fun and play in my day.
I choose gratitude over fear.
I forgive those who have hurt me.
I welcome abundance into my life.
I am love.
I choose courage and kindness.
I will drink plenty of water.
I will make someone smile today.
