Doing yoga whilst blindfolded can be a really incredible, insightful and empowering experience.

Pratyahara is one of the Eight Limbs of Yoga (see starter blog post here > ) meaning withdrawal of the senses. With eyes open, we can easily get caught up in what our yoga neighbours are doing, whether they’re more or less flexible, more or less strong, or maybe we’re distracted by something outside. Hopefully, each session on the mat builds more and more internal focus, but let’s face it, blindfolded yoga will definitely help us reap these benefits!

Closing the eyes, or indeed practicing yoga whilst blindfolded, gives us insight into just how focused on one thing we can really be. You’ll need all your brainpower and all your other senses focused on one thing to move through our yoga flow.

Taking the focus deeply inwards into the body makes us truly honest about what feels good and what’s a step too far – you know there’s nobody watching so you’ll be moving in a way that honestly suits your body. A fully educational, meditative experience![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”5002″ img_size=”medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”mkdf-element-from-bottom”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_column_text]
