Set an intention for your practice.
Who would you give it all away to?
Bring your beloved into your mind's eye. This might be a higher power, a friend, a lover, or even a pet. Perhaps today your beloved is you, your higher self. Today's beloved may be different than tomorrow's.
Whoever comes up first, place them in your heart. And let your practice-- the motivation you have for getting to your yoga mat, all the efforts you make in the poses-- let your practice be for your beloved.
Give your practice away.
