This week’a practice finds us back at the The Wall for resistance, focus, and alignment!!! Our Sanskrit focus is “DHANYA VAD”, or a big thank you for 12 years of service and teaching to the Temecula Valley!!! Our hand gesture (mudra) is for “Thankfulness”, and acknowledging what is good!!! It also promotes healthy lungs, and a strong immune system!!!

The Yin practice will help you balance your Chakra system, and will include the sounding of the Tibetan Bowls!!!

Our meditation focus is “Gratitude”, and may be contemplated upon while listening to Kiran Murti’s “Sweet Dreams”.

This week we focus on building strength and stamina, toning and sculpting!!! We emphasize bearing our own body weight, and you may also opt to use hand weights for a portion of the practice. Our Sanskrit focus is Ravi Hum. This mantra recognizes the radiance and spirit of the sun’s energy. Our mudra (hand gesture) will be the “Matangi”. This mudra promotes harmony, balance, and strength. It also maintains healthy internal organs, ears and eyes. This week’s Yin practice will strengthen, support, and maintain a “healthy back”!!! Our meditation focus will be “Harmony”. The music selection for supporting your time in meditation is from Michael Hoppe’s Wind Songs CD, and the piece is entitled “Silence”.
