If you find it hard to focus during yoga, you may just need a motivational meditation! Here are a few ideas:
- Focus on a goal youve set for yourself. The goal can be related to work, your fitness, your family, or a specific relationship. Breathe in more focus on this goal, and breathe out any obstacles in the way of you achieving this goal.
- If you are suffering from anxiety, focus on just paying close attention to your breath and how it connects your mind to your body. If you start thinking about other thoughts, come back to your breathing and allow that to be the bridge to keep you present with your mind and body.
- Pick a compliment for yourself and recite it to yourself throughout the class. This will pump you up and also reprogram your mind to think uplifting thoughts.
