Triple ‘R’ Week: Rest, Restore, and Renew

Greetings from YFL!!! I am happy to report that I am free of my cast, and walking very slowly and steadily once again!!! I am going to stay on a reduced teaching schedule through the end of December, and then resume the normal class schedule on January 3rd!!!

This week’s practice is all about restoration, as we enjoy Triple ‘R’ week: Rest, Restore, and Renew!!! Our Sanskrit focus is AUM AIEEM NAMAH, which translates as, “My true nature is love and joy”. Our mudra (hand gesture) is ‘RELAX’, or let it flow!!! Interlace the fingers, let the thumbs hang freely pointing down with palms facing down.

Our Yin practice will focus on ‘Happy Hips’, and will emphasize poses to release and open our hip joints.

Deb will be handing out Christmas Cards, and gifts the week of 12/16-12/21!!! So be sure to attend class for your present!!!

This week’s schedule will be as follows:

Mon-: 8:15 & 9:30 a.m.-Deb

Greetings from YFL, and Happy December!!! Don’t forget your own self-well-being this month!!! Come to the mat often!!! This week we return to Deb’s classic thematic practice for each week of the month!!! This week is ‘Weight Time’!!! We will emphasize toning, sculpting, and strengthening using our body weight and optional hand weights!!! Our Sanskrit focus is ‘Bhakti’, or ‘Your Personal Path of Devotion’, and what that means to you!!! Our hand gesture (mudra) is the classic ‘Jhana’, or connection to ‘Universal Energy’. Our meditation focus is ‘Holiday Cheer’, and the music selection this week for contemplation is ‘Winds of Samskara’s’, Heaven is Here.
