Very short savasana tonight — whoops!  One change to my flow I’m trying to consciously implement is intention setting.  After the warm ups, taking a few breaths and having the students (if they want) silently set a goal for today’s class.  I’m trying to do the same, though most of the time it’s “Get your lefts and rights right” or “breath with the class”.   So even though my intentions aren’t anything grand, I like pausing before the Sun Salutations.  It’s a good way to clear the air, the mind and the heart before diving in.  Hope the students like it too, because they’re gonna be doing it at every class!  🙂
