Intention is defined as setting an expectation for yourself, an expectation for your personal evolution. Going to yoga class helps us reconnect to our commitment to grow by giving us time to focus on our key intentions known as sankalpa. The consistency of the yogic practice (sadhana) supports us to keep these promises. When we come to the mat we inherently contract with ourselves to continue to expand our range. Therefore, we do not stop aspiring to spiritual development even once we’ve attained an intention.
