When there is no water in a marsh, all life is exhausted. Similar is a man without his inner resolve.
Yi Jing, hex. 47


1. Relaxing deeply. Find a place where you can fully relax in a comfortable position with your eyes closed. Focus on every muscle in your body starting from the toes ending with the jaws, tongue and eyes.

Give yourself as much time to do this stage as possible, ideally 8 to 10 minutes.

2. Visualisation. When you feel deeply relaxed, think of something you really would like to experience, an event, life situation. You can also think of who you would like to become. Imagine reaching this vision with total ease and without any effort (if anything spears to stand on your way recognise it as a reaction of your mind).

This stage doesn't have to take long, spend as long as you want.

3. Connecting. Think how daily practice of yoga can help you with your vision (if cannot help, forget yoga :))

4. Completing When you feel ready slowly start moving your toes, fingers and open you eyes.

In addition daily tracking of time spent on practising yoga, for example with a mobile app, can be a good way to motivate yourself to do the practice until the habit is established.
