This 1 hour intermediate hatha yoga class is yoga for concentration. It is part of our yoga for energy and how to boost energy series. In this hatha yoga class we will boost your energy by cultivating concentration on one thing instead of many things. This will allow your nervous system to relax, calm down and begin to restore. You will experience less stress and anxiety as a result. By practicing yoga for concentration, your singularity of focus or drishti allows your body and mind to heal in a deep and lasting way.

This intermediate hatha yoga class includes hatha yoga asanas, eye yoga, and mudras as an antidote to a culture that pulls our attention in many different and competing directions. Instead of having our attention and fragmented in this yoga for concentration class we will focus our energy or drishti in a way to bring relaxation and peace.

In our culture our attention tends to be pulled out in many different competing directions. Information technology and multimedia fragments our attention flickering from one stream to another moment to moment. Multi-tasking or dividing our attention from one task to another in rapid succession drains our energy.

Our wonderful world of technology has also created a culture that is increasingly diffused and scattered moving from one thing to the next. We have become accustomed to being interrupted.

One way we can nourish our energy is to focus our energy. When we focus our energy on one thing instead of many things our nervous system can relax and begin to restore. This kind of singular focus allows for our body and mind to heal in a deep and lasting way.

Our yoga practice is one space where we can pause, reflect, refocus, deeply connect with ourselves and restore our energy reserves.
