It is said that breathing is the best tool that we have to connect with our soul.
But our gaze is a fantastic tool, too.
During the practice of yoga, one often feels that the mind is elsewhere except on the yoga mat, even when you are deeply breathing.
In those moments, you can easily realize that your eyes are all around the place, looking here and there, non stop.
Focus your eyes on one spot and keep breathing.
You will notice the power of the two tools working together.
Also during Savasana in Bikram Yoga practice it is said that you should focus your eyes on one spot. Not only it helps to stop the mind from wandering, but also it makes it easier to connect with yourself.
