What is your intention for 2020?
Dear HYE Yogis,

I hope this finds you cherishing the wonderful memories you created and chose to experience during the holiday season. Life is ALL about choices and yes you do have control over ALL your choices. You can steer your life in the direction you want to go with a wise choice of INTENTION, a " Sankalpa " in Sanskrit. What is your intention for 2020 and the next decade?

"Without direction, your life will continue to be driven by these same pre-programmed beliefs, behaviors and habits." Kamini Desai, PHD

I have made time to think, reflect and consider what I want my intention and direction to be in 2020 and beyond. This tends to be a time to set goals. Sometimes goals are set only to be broken before the end of the month. Intention is the conscious placement of energy in the direction you want it to go. When you make time to allow your mind to meditate and focus on stillness, subtle shifts can begin to happen.

My body is made up of internal impressions, " Samskaras " from past experiences that cause me to act in a certain way by habit(s), some helpful and unhelpful. Unhelpful habits drive my life tendencies towards limiting behaviors/decisions, beliefs and negative emotions. I become a victim of my own fears and attachments and believe that old stale self-image and identification from the past. The stories I tell myself are not always the truth. I have the power to create a new improved mindset for my future by setting an intention.

I encourage you to set an intention that will serve who you truly are and what you truly want to be, feel and experience in 2020. An intention is a direction without attachment to a specific end result that allows one permission to get back on track when a detour might happen. A goal tends to be full of self-judgement and inner conflict, if one fails to meet it. Intention allows one to learn from one's detours without conflict and judgment while supporting one to keep moving in the direction desired.

Take charge of your life, create fresh habits and set a new direction. Maybe your intention is: "I will move towards feeling less anxiety", "I want to eat more moderately", "I want to make a career change", "Say 'no" more often", "I want to exercise more", or "I want to accept myself as is". An intention does not mean you have to practice it perfectly, it simply means you have to try your best with self-love, patience and attention with direction! Make 2020 your best year ever and the start of a gratifying new decade!!

"Where attention goes, energy flows." Kamini Desai, PHD

Much love & appreciation,

David started his yoga journey in September 2016. His dedication and commitment to his practice has accumulated over 775 hours with over 650 classes. He accomplished 108 classes in his first 3 1/2 months of his practice! Even though at times, life presented him hurdles to get over, he continued to inspire his fellow yogis with his strong returns to his mat. He has been heard saying more than once, "yoga gave him his life back" and "yoga saved his life". David will forever be HYE's poster child of what it takes to be a true yogi and one that never gives up!! David exemplifies what it means to "breathe~sweat~heal"!

David, we are so happy to have you as part of our HYE family!
