Pagoda Yoga|Love, Peace Happiness-What is a Drishti?

Where to look during Yoga Asana practice?

“Look where you are going!” Does it sound familiar to you? During yoga practise, we must look where our energy is going.

The Sanskrit word Drishti is translated as “Gaze,” “View, “or “Focal Point”

Drishti can help you draw your outward-looking eyes inward so that your asana practise becomes a moving meditation.  

Here are the 9 Drishti’s

1: Tips of the nose – Nasagra Drishti

2: Up to space – Urdva Drishti

3: Third Eye – Brumadya Drishti

4: Tip of the middle finger- Hastagra Drishti

5: Tip of the thumb- Angushta Drishti

6: Right Side – Parshva Drishti

7: Left Side – Parshva Drishti

8: Navel- Nabi Drishti

9: Tip of the big toe- Padagra Drishti

These are some of the examples of Drishti's in yoga asana practice.

Whenever you are on your mat, begin with your eyes closed and look inward. Whenever you are in challenging yoga poses, activate your Drishti and focus.

Keeping a steady gaze and a steady mind creates a calm and steady yoga practice.

Practice with me and stay healthy both inside and out.

Namaste,

Lee
