Following the breath and working with physical alignment are two ways to tap into interoception. When we practice pranayama, regulation of the breath, we become quiet and observant, aware of movement happening inside the body. With experience, we notice how small internal actions impact the breath and how the breath affects the mind. It seems that this happens more and more in my classroom than ever before…maybe we are taking the time to know more about how we work, or our focus is changing and maybe it is the way I am teaching now…...or just a general shift of our times?
Eventually, I hope you will find that yoga has brought you a better sense of your full embodiment, both outside and inside.
I am so very grateful to be teaching yoga to witness these changes!
