Let’s Go With The Flow!!!

photo-626

Greetings from YFL!!!

This is Classic Hatha week at YFL, and Deb’s practice will emphasize “Vinyasa Flow”, or “Let’s Go with the Flow”!!! Our Sanskrit focus is the term “Vinyasa”, which means literally to “place in a special way”. It is a fluid linking of one asana to the next, much like a dance. Our Mudra focus for this week is the “Prithivi” or “Earth Hand Gesture”, which balances the root chakra, and increases our sense of being grounded and connection.

Our meditation focus is “Connection”, and is set to David Lanz’s “Blue Largo” music.

A reminder that we have a wonderful special event coming in May!!! Sandi Kimmel is hosting a two hour workshop on the healing powers of sound through chanting. She has titled her event “An EnCHANTing Workshop”!!! It is being offered at YFL on 5/20 from 1-3 p.m. at a bargain price of $15 pre-pay, and $20 at the door. Sandi will also have available her CDs for purchase. Please call or email to sign-up, or register at the studio!!!

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

Greetings from YFL!!! We worked very hard last week with body weight bearing and hand weight bearing, so this week we will counter with a deep, gentle, restorative form of yoga practice!!! Our Sanskrit focus is “AGNI”, or our internal, purifying fire…the heat, light, and energy that burns through illusion, and leads us to self-knowledge, and ultimate Truth. Our Mudra focus is the “PRAN”. This is the hand gesture for inner energy to improve our vitality and vision. Our meditation focus is “SERENITY”, and is set to the music of Tom Barabas’ “Sedona Suites” “Nuages”.

The EnCHANTing workshop has been moved to May 20th, from 1-3 p.m. The cost is $15 pre-pay, or $20 at the door.

Yoga For Life will be CLOSED 4/14-4/16, in observance of the Easter Holiday weekend. Classes will resume their regular schedule on Monday, 4/17. Have a blessed holiday with your family and friends!!!
