What our Students say about Sunstone
I like to practice yoga at the end of the day because it helps me to integrate, accept and release. Yoga is about strength, balance, focus, self control and clarity.

Focus Wristbands
Sunstone developed the Focus Wristband program in order to recognize our student’s achievements and encourage each one to reach a higher level of achievement in their practice. Each band represents a different area of focus and symbolizes stages of growth and understanding in body, mind and life.

Focus wristbands help to:

  • Remind you, your classmates and instructors of your effort and achievement
  • Define your current area of focus
  • Encourage you to practice
  • Help your teachers know how and where to assist you
  • Build community with your fellow students

Purpose is the focus of the 75 class wristband.

Let the understanding of this purpose continue to motivate you in your pursuit of greater mental and physical health, and focus on what drives you in your practice.

Do not let your knowledge of our series allow you to practice mindlessly. Stay engaged. Take the opportunity to really work on a specific posture during class. You may always ask your teachers for guidance to gain a better understanding or further knowledge of a pose.

Once in a while going back to basics is necessary in order to achieve progress. Look in the mirrors during class, connect with your breath and focus on balance in your postures. Remember the importance of hydrating both before and after class, and don’t forget to honor your body where you are each day.
