Sankalpa is sanskrit for your intention or the vow that you set in your heart and mind at the beginning of your yoga class. In other words, when you set your intention, you are creating a Sankalpa.

The quieter you get and the more you let go of control, the easier your intention will come to you.


“Our intention creates our reality.”
