Unleashing Your Infinite Potential with Intention

Listen to the audio version here

We all come to yoga for different reasons, but all journeys are different--sometimes intentional and sometimes less so. Whatever the journey, yoga meets us where we are and also helps us to dig deeper into our true desire. James Reeves, worldwide yoga and iRest yoga nidra teacher, joins The Yoga Summit to explore one of life’s largest questions: why are we here?

Enjoy a heartfelt conversation about what it means to live with intention, how yoga can help guide us, and why a longing for freedom from desire is perhaps the ultimate intention.

James Reeves has studied with a wide range of teachers. His greatest inspiration has been the work of Dr. Richard Miller, who founded the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI) and created iRest Yoga Nidra--a system of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry.

James will share his yoga journey with us and also lead us through one of his powerful yoga nidra practices.

In this interview you'll also learn...

  • What a sankalpa intention-setting practice is
  • How to uncover what we truly want from our practice
  • How to avoid inadvertently creating obstacles by setting an intention
  • An intention-setting practice that leads us to the deepest intention [13:53 -24:00]

Quote From This Interview To Inspire You

"Getting to the real depth of why we’re driven to do these practices can take years. We’re learning to live into the answers, learning to live with the questions, to be patient."


In this 34-minute guided practice with James, we explore deeper states of yoga nidra. we will experience our bodies as being inherently spacious, exploring the space between breaths and the spaces between thoughts. By exploring this expansion, we dissolve into the simplest state of all: the state of being.
