Blindfolded Yoga forces you to turn your attention inwards by taking away your sense of sight. This is known as Pratyahara which is sanskrit for the withdrawal of the senses.
By taking away sight, you turn up the dial of your other senses - hearing, sensory touch and increased proprioception. Proprioception is the ability to sense stimuli arising within the body regarding position, motion, and equilibrium. Even when blindfolded, a person knows through proprioception if an arm is above the head or hanging by the side of the body.
Blindfolded yoga changes the way you practice yoga and deepens your postures (asanas). It will also have you questioning the way you move, where you are physically, and it will increase your level of self trust.
Blindfolded Yoga is regularly incorporated into yoga sessions at FliteFit.
