Bonus Week-Sukha & Stirha!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! This is ‘Bonus Week’ at the studio, since we have a 5th week in the month of January!!! Thus, Weight Week will be next week, and we will enjoy a full week of Sukha (Yin) & Stirha (Yang) practice. This is a nice blend between the two forces of practice, both the feminine and masculine aspects of energy flowing into a harmony of oneness within our minds, bodies, and hearts. Our hand gesture (mudra) will be the “Matangi”, and this will help promote harmony and strength, and inner balance of our body organs. The Sanskrit focus is “So Hum”, which translates as “I am”, to which reply truth, joy, happiness, well-being, compassion, etc. Our meditation focus will be “Harmony”, and may be contemplated while listening to Sacred Earth’s “Bhakit Heeneem” music.

There is still time to register for Sophie’s “Yoga for Grief” workshop, 2/23, from 1-3 p.m. @ $25.  Sign-up for the quarterly Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing Concert will begin next week, and space is limited, 4/6, from 1-3 p.m. @ $25- guided by  Betty  & Peter. Carol and Deb will lead the annual Yoga-Hike on 4/12. We will meet at the Visitor Center of the Santa Rosa Plateau at 8:30 a.m., and enjoy the gorgeous vistas as we hike, and listen to Carol describe the flora, fauna, and geology. Once we reach the tree grove, then Deb will guide us through yoga and meditation. Following the activities you have the option of meeting at Starbucks for coffee, tea, or brunch. This event is FREE, other than your fee of $4 for enjoying the Plateau. There will be a registration sheet forthcoming.

Stay with your discipline of practicing at least twice per week in this New Year, which is about to enter month #2!!! Remember we have a new instructor, and some new classes to check out, plus all the oldies, but goodies!!!

The February YFL Newsletter will be on your email desk at 10 a.m., on Friday 2/1!!!

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