The first thing that came to mind when I started writing this post is, remember those day of the week underwear? What if we could have a guideline for what yoga poses to "wear" each day!
Well, look no further than the actual name of the day itself. In ancient times, each day of the week was named after a planet and the energies of the planets were ritualized for specific intentions.
Setting intentions based on planetary energies allows for us to harness the potential for growth and transformation. Yoga is a wonderful vehicle to capture the energetic influence of each day as it is an active form of meditation. When setting your intention in line with the energy of the day, you can truly experience a deeply moving and energizing practice.
This week I will be posting what each day energetically represents and the yoga poses that are best to practice on those days. I encourage you to make a ritual out of your daily yoga practice by setting your intentions before you begin and then holding those intentions throughout your practice.
Namaste everyone :)
