5 tips to living your yoga on and off the mat

1. Set your intention. Begin each practice (of life AND yoga) with a clear purpose in mind. This will help you stay on track while honoring and clarifying why you are doing what you do.
2. Stay in balance. Just as yoga teaches you how to balance with grace in awkward poses, it is important to find a similar balance in life. A well-rounded yogi who balances work and play is less likely to burn out.
3. Breathe deeply. The breath is an important life force. Begin to deepen your breath during challenges and notice profound psychological and physical effects.
4. Take risks. Do something everyday that scares you. This will keep you out of your comfort zone and encourage new experiences (or poses).
5. Express gratitude. Acknowledge at least one thing each day that you are grateful for. Awareness helps conquer scarcity thinking and keeps your focus positive.
