Set a Daily Intention with this Morning Yoga Practice


You don’t have to be totally into to “manifesting” to get something out of this morning yoga practice. (But it’s also totally cool if you are!)

Setting a daily intention can be a simple, practical way to live with just a little more focus, and practicing yoga is the perfect way to do it. Not to mention the fact that AM yoga helps you transition a little more seamlessly from the calm of sleep to the frenzy of daily responsibilities. (Unlike your loud, obnoxious alarm.)
