BRFWA

During my training at Kripalu I was introduced to the acronym BRFWA and I’ve practiced it ever since.

  • Breathe
  • Relax
  • Feel
  • Watch
  • Allow

On the yoga mat it means:

  • Come back to your breath. Watch it moving in and out.
  • Let go of the physical and emotional grip. Relax.
  • Be mindful of how what you are doing makes you feel.
  • Watch what happens as you practice. How does your body move or react? How does yoga affect your mood? Watch without judgment.
  • Allow the pose to unfold, to open up, to expand.
  • Come back to breath.

And it means the same thing off the mat.

Invite mindfulness into every thing you do.

Notice your life.
