‘Weight Time’-Happy July, it is weight week on the mat!!!

Greetings from YFL, and Happy July!!! As we welcome in a new month that always means it is “Weight Week” on the mat!!! The YFL staff wishes you and yours a most Happy 4th of July holiday!!! Enjoy the festivities, and stay safe!!! In observance of the holiday, YFL will BE CLOSED 7/4-7/7. Our new Summer Schedule will resume on Monday, 7/8. Please consult the Class Schedule on our website: www.yogaforlife06.com for all the new class offerings!!!

Our physical practice will emphasize baring weight, our own body weight, and the use of hand weights. This promotes strong bone health, increased strength, power, and muscle toning. Our Sanskrit focus is one of the eight limbs of yoga, Pratyahara, or to withdraw from external stimuli, and remained focused and connected to the body via the breath. Our mudra is ‘The Grounding Hand Gesture’. This helps stay focused, grounded, and connected. Our meditation focus is ‘Freedom’, and the music selection is Tom Baraba’s CD Nuages, the song is ‘Clouds’.

Our first annual ‘Great Yoga Adventure to The Bowery’ was so much fun!!! Everyone had a great time, and gave the The Bowery an A+ for food, atmosphere, and service!!! The yoga wasn’t too bad either!!! You just have to come next time, if you were unable to attend this one!!!

Sophie’s 4-week Yoga For Emotional Liberation workshop begins on 7/10. It will meet from 6-7 p.m. for four consecutive Wednesday evenings. The cost is $65, and there is still time to register.

If you are interested in learning or brushing up on basic fundamentals and principles of yoga, then please email or drop-in to register. Yoga Basics is now a 90 minute class @$40. Meditation I is by appointment, and includes a single 120 minute class @ $70.

It will be another wonderful week at YFL (although short)!!! So, get your yoga in on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week!!! As always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb

Remember that we offer virtual classes every Wednesday, and Sunday during these difficult times. Email Deb @ yogaforlife06@verizon.net for more information!!!

This week’s class is about using the ‘Wall’ as a prop of resistance, alignment, focus, and power. Our Sanskrit focus is ‘Sukha’, or the energy of joy, happiness, bliss, and peace. Who doesn’t need more of that energy in their life?!!! Our hand gesture (mudra) is the ‘Ushas’, or connecting to all things good. Interlace your fingers, and place the left thumb on top of the right, with palms facing up. Our meditation focus is ‘Joy’, and may be contemplated as you listen to James Hood’s ‘Imginary Friend’.

This week’s Yin practice will emphasize ‘Happy Hips’, or opening the hip joint.

Greetings from YFL.  Sending the energy of love, encouragement, and support to anyone, and everyone, that has ever attended classes, training, or workshops at our studio. Sending out the encouragement of ‘Metta’, the healing light and energy of Spirit, and the energy of ‘unconditional love’ to ALL. Trying to sit, listen, understand, and connect through common ground. We all have hearts ‘beating at the same time’, and created by the same Spirit. Let us find ways to connect rather than disconnect. Sending lots of love and hugs to all of you, your family, and your friends.

This week’s class is all about ‘Restoration’, or ‘Triple R’ week. Lets’ restore, renew, and relax, as we simultaneously nourish, and heal our bodies with deep yoga poses, and breath work.

Greetings from YFL, and Happy New Year!!! Let us be grateful for a new day, new week, new month, and NEW YEAR!!! 2021 here we come!!! This week, as we return to the mat, from our holiday break, will emphasize the use of hand weights, and body weight for building strength, stamina, and power!!! Our Sanskrit focus is one of gratitude, thankfulness, and gratefulness, or ‘Dhanya Vad’. Our mudra (hand gesture) is the ‘Openness’ position, which enhances opening the bronchial tubes, and promoting deep, efficient breathing!!! It opens the window of your soul. It opens us for what is beautiful and good, and to accept both with thankfulness. Our meditation focus is ‘Dhanya Vad’ (gratitude). The music selection for contemplation is Tom Barabas’ ‘Clouds’ from his ‘Nuage’ CD.

This week’s Yin practice will balance all 7 major chakras. The practice will incorporate seed sound vibrations with the Tibetan bowls, chanting the seed sound, color focus, and physical body alignment with asanas.

It will be a great start to the New Year, and we hope that soon things will begin to return to normal with the distribution of the Covid vaccine. We are looking forward to group gatherings, and events, when the time is right!!!

Happy New Year!!! (12/28-1/2/21)

Greetings from YFL, and Happy New Year!!! I hope this weekly blog finds you safe, well, and happy, and that you had a wonderful Christmas & holiday celebration!!! We have almost completed this difficult year of 2020, and have hope that the New Year will bring much joy, and renewed life!!! YFL will continue to be CLOSED all of this week (12/27-1/3/21). We will begin classes again on 1/4/21!!! Our first week back will be ‘Weight Week’, so come prepared to work hard!!!

To assist you through this last week of the year, and going into our New Year, I offer the following spiritual tools!!! Let your focus be on ‘ATMAN’ this week , or your inner, authentic Self, your ‘Soul’. Find ways to nurture and soothe your soul. Music, art, exercise, connecting with others safely. Meditate, and develop your soul connection, through reflection, and transformation, as you rest in the ‘Light of Source’. Your mudra (hand gesture) is ‘JNANA’, and is a hand position to evoke regeneration for the mind, body, and soul. It lightens and clarifies the ‘Spirit’. Connect the index finger to the thumb on each hand, and hold the left hand below the right. Left palm faces away, and the right palm faces your chest. Your meditation focus is your ‘Atman’, and may be reflected upon, while listening to Deva & Miten chant the ‘Kumatra Sutra’.

Remember my Christmas gift is unlimited use of my YouTube Channel classes through 1/3/21. This week’s Sunday Meditation is about ‘Everyday Miracles’ within our very lives!!! Enjoy!!! Next week will return to our 10 part series on ‘Yoga Nidra’ with part 5!!!

Happy New Year!!! As always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb

Winter Solstice Practice (12/21-12/27/20)

Greetings from YFL, and Merry Christmas Week!!! Originally I had planned to offer classes through Wednesday of this week, however, due to ongoing issues with the HVAC system, we will BE CLOSED 12/21-1/3. The repair for the system has been scheduled by the building management for 1/2-1/3. I apologize for this inconvenience, and cancellation of classes prior to the holidays. All of us at YFL wish you a joyous holiday, and prosperous, healthy, and happy New Year. We look forward to many wonderful days on the mat with you in 2021!!!

As an additional Christmas gift, I would like to encourage you to use my online YouTube classes during the time that the studio is closed. In particular, I gift you today’s new Sunday meditation, which is on the ‘Winter Solstice’. Remember to enjoy the ‘Grand Conjunction’ of Jupiter and Saturn, as they shine in the night sky just past sunset, symbolizing the Christmas Star. This last happened in 1623, and will be the last time it is visible in our lifetime.

Our meditation music is by ‘Winds of Samsara’, and features their piece entitled, ‘Heaven is Here’. Our meditation focus is ‘Joy’ the fourth point of Advent. Our mudra (hand gesture) is ‘Vismaya’, or having faith in the mystery and benevolence of the Spirit of the Universe. Place the index finger on the middle of the thumb, and the the middle finger at the end of the thumb on each hand. Rest in the temple of your body, deep within, and be infused by the light, support, and comfort of Spirit.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! As always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb

“There are, it seems two muses: the Muse of Inspiration, who gives us inarticulate visions and desires, and the Muse of Realization, who returns again and again to say, “It is yet more difficult than you thought.” This is the muse of form. It may be then that form serves us best when it works as an obstruction, to baffle us and deflect our intended course. It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”—Wendell Berry
