Flow is a mental state where you are not feeling like you are doing your normal everyday routines. Rather, you feel like entering a different reality where it is almost like you don’t exist. When you are really involved in the process of creating or mastering something new, all your attention is focused on that one process, temporarily taking attention away from other experiences like hunger, pain, identity, worries. You forget about everything else, and all bodily sensations temporarily fade to the background. You are one with your focus and one with the creation, whether that is a musical or dance performance, composing music, writing a blogpost, or creating a new yoga sequence. Ideally, this flow is a state we would like to experience during our yoga practice. A feeling of full focus and awareness, activation and relaxation, the mind and the body being one, without being conscious of the concept of ‘you’ (or others on the mat besides you for that matter), fully emerged in what you are doing.
