In general, to attract love into our life we focus on heart opening sequences when practising Yoga. This is the case whether we are yearning increaed self-love or love from another person in our life.
Please see also additional ideas such as positive affirmations, essential oils, Meditation & Relaxation techniques to inspire Love into your life....so, Let's get started.
Come into a seated position, close your eyes and bring your focus to your breath. Spend a few minutes centering yourself. Repeat a love affirmation to yourself quietly such as 'I am love' or something similar, while focusing on your heart chakra. If you wish you can inhale or apply a heart opening essential oil such as Lavender.
Let go of any thoughts that might distract you and bring your focus back to your breath. When you feel connected and grounded you can gently open your eyes and come into a standing position on your mat.
A nice way to start your Yoga practice is with a few rounds of sun salutations.
