Choose Your Intention
If you have taken my class before, I'm sure you have heard me ask, "What you would like to accomplish in the next hour?" I really believe each class is an opportunity to discover something new, or focus on a particular exercise or section. It's so easy to come in and go through the motions and become caught up in the routine of it all, especially as we get deeper into the holiday season. For sure I have days where I want to "just get through it." I also know I owe it to myself not to do that.
I can always find something new, or focus on technique, sometimes just listen to my body. The opportunity is there, always. Yes, I approach class (both teaching and taking) this way, but it can carry over into the next hour, or day. Ultimately the opportunity is yours, and how far you are willing to take it. Hold on to it, see what works, and go from there.
