One of my favorite ways to begin a yoga class or my own practice to with cultivating the witness consciousness. I find a comfortable seat and observe where the breath begins in the body, how it feels, and notice any sensations within the body without judgement or attachment. I imagine that I’m watching myself watching my breath like a fly on the wall, detaching myself from the experience as a non-judging witness.
This is useful in meditation, too.
