To the Wall and Back!!!

Greetings from YFL, and Happy Monday!!! This week we travel to the “Wall & Back” on our mats!!! That magical week of using the wall as our prop of resistance!!!  Why you ask?  The wall provides focus, alignment, and power to our asana practice!!! The weekly Sanskrit focus is “Sarvesham Shantir Bhavatu”, or “I wish peace for ALL BEINGS”!!! Our supporting mudra (hand gesture) is the grounding form. Our meditation focus is “Patience”, and you may listen to the music provided on this blog, while meditating each day. The music selection is James Hood’s “Eternity”.

Summer is winding down, and we will celebrate with a special event, The Sound Bath Concert, on 8/25, from 1-3 p.m. Registration is now CLOSED!!! If you registered, please make your payment by the end of this week, $25.

Beginning this Fall, Deb will be offering a monthly, FREE meditation class!!! It will be on the third Thursday of each month from 7:30-8:00 p.m. Each month will focus on a particular method and theme for achieving the “meditative state”. This class is OPEN to anyone that wants to meditate in the energy of a group setting. The first session will be on 9/20!!!

The FALL EQUINOX Drum Circle will happen on Sunday, 9/23, from 5-6 p.m., and it too, is FREE!!!

How to have a yoga body…have a body and go to yoga!!! :-)!!!

It will be another fun and fabulous week on the mat at YFL!!! As always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb

Aaahhh…Restore…Aaahhh!!!

Greetings from YFL!!!

Happy Monday!!! Aaahhh…it is time to restore, renew, and refresh this week!!! Prepare to relax, and stretch deeply with the use of time and props in your asana practice!!! Our Sanskrit focus is “Brahm Ananda”, or to rest in and share the energy of “happiness”. The supporting mudra (hand gesture) is “Dhanya”, or the hand position for evoking meditation and contemplation. Our  meditation focus will be “Siddhi”, or connecting to our “authentic self”, and detaching from ego. This establishes our deeper connection to “Source” leading to bliss. These three components: restoration, Dhanya, and Brahm Ananda, practiced together create our “Sankalpa” for the week, our intention for practice. Of course these are suggestions, and you should always create and tap into your specific goals, and resolves each time you step onto your mat.

This is the last week to sign-up for the Sound Bath concert, which will be happening on 8/25, from 1-3 p.m. The cost is $25. Kim’s Reiki I training is also fast approaching. It will be at YFL on 9/16, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., and the cost is $150. The details are posted on the YFL Facebook page.

It is VERY HOT this week!!! It is the perfect week to let yourself restore on the mat!!! As always, it will be another great week at YFL, and we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb
