This week’s class focuses on the yoga concept, “drishti.” Drishti means point of focus. It is a gentle gaze outwards that brings awareness inwards. In sanskrit drishti translates as vision, point of view, intelligence and wisdom. The root of the word, “dhr” means to hold, support and keep our mind collected. How perfect is that for our yoga practice? Drishti can be on a candle flame, a chakra, a mantra, breath, bodily sensation, thoughts, emotions, or spirit. In fact in Bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion the drishti or point of focus allows us to see past our outer differences to our inner essence or truth. In this episode we will choose different points of focus for our drishti.
