In order to maintain focus, choose your drishti:
Hold your hands up to the sky
Focus on your thumb
And balance: breathe
Feel the calmness
Balance peace, release, serenity.
Focus on your browbone
Let your gaze sink back
See the colour at the edge of light
Behind your eyelids:
Spiritual eyes open
Physical eyes closed
To glimpse the light which brings divinity.
Focus on your nose-tip
Don’t mind the disturbance
Of your each-day train of thought
Retrains your focus on the never-ending now.
Look out at your fingertips
Your stance, defensive
Your limbs terse, tensed and ready
Yet not agressive:
Still determined to defend your peace of mind.
Look out to your side
Your arms, your heart, your senses
Feel your core
Lift out from your fingertips
And shine with all the sun’s reflected light.
Salute the rising sun
Heralding the new day’s light
Its dawning glow
A simple welcome prayer:
Salute the sun and shine through the new day.
Greet your navel
As you curl around yourself
Remember the coil that bound you to your mother
First the coil and then the pruning cut
The life, the growth
The gradual return
It carries you
As once it brought you safe into this world.
Focus on your toe-tips
As you forward-fold
And downward gaze
To gather strength
And gather new perspective:
Gather strength and grow into the world.

Thank you for sharing it! 😊👏🏼
I miss my yoga class, but I do it at home as best I can. What I miss most is my elderly teacher’s calm and gentle voice. Luckily I can faintly hear her after years of practice with her. Thanks for talking us through this one. I may just revisit and use this one tomorrow morning!
Thank you 😊 online yoga has been keeping me sane recently
I used to go yoga classes and absolutely love doing it! I watch yoga with adriane which is pretty good and calming. Great post and thank you for sharing ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
This is beautifully written. I love how each section is a different pose.
Thank you: I was going through in my head trying to write something about each one 🧘♀️
