To the Wall!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! This week we travel to The Wall with our mats!!! The Wall ¬†will serve us in three ways-alignment, focus, and resistance!!! Our hand gesture or mudra is the “Shuni”, which will connect us to the fire element, and promote patience, discipline, stability, and strength to forge ahead through difficulties in our lives. Our meditation focus for the week is “Patience”, and may be contemplated while listening to James Hood’s “Imaginary Friend”.

This week’s Yin focus is “Chakra Balancing”. We will use symbols, colors, and Tibetan Bowl notes, as well as yoga asanas to balance our energy wheels.

Drum Circle for the Winter Solstice season is this Sunday (1/20) from 5-6 p.m., and is FREE!!! Bring an instrument of choice and a friend or two!!! Deb does have instruments for borrowing, as well!!!

Reiki I training is 1/27 with Kim. There is still time to register. Contact Deb for registration info!!!

Now what is in store on the mat this week!!! Our physical intent is to Restore, Renew, and Relax with the use of props for deep stretching. The Sanskrit focus is “ANAHATA”, or the 4th Chakra. This is the heart chakra connecting us to Universal Compassion and Love. The mudra ( hand gesture) is the ‘ANAHATA’, The unstruck beat and sound of the heart.

This week’s Yin practice with Deb will focus on opening the hips.

The Meditation focus is ‘ANAHATA” to develop awareness of, compassion for, and kindness towards all beings. The supporting music for your meditation time is from “Sedona Suites” by Tom Barabas, and the song selection is “Moon Dust”.

It will be a wonderful week at YFL, and we hope you will join us as often as you can!!! As always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb
