Classic Hatha: To Enliven & Energize


Greetings from YFL!!! This week puts a wrap on the month of February!!! Wow, time is just zoooooooommmmmming by at YFL!!! Since, it is the last week of the month, we will be practice Classic Hatha, which means to enliven and energize through the balancing of the male and female energy systems within us. The practice will emphasize power, flow, balance, strength, and agility. Our supporting Sanskrit focus is ‘Bhakti’, or your chosen path of devotion to Universal Energy. The hand gesture focus, or mudra, is the ‘Performance’ gesture for improving self-assurance, self-confidence, and self-awareness. Add to this gesture the silent mantra of ‘I am sure’.

Our Yin practice for the week will focus on postures for opening the hips, so it is ‘Happy Hips’ week!!!

The meditation focus is ‘I am sure’, and may be contemplated while listening to Enya’s ‘Watermark’.

Sophie and Summer will be ready for you on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with their new offerings for the week!!!

I attended Sophie’s newly revised ‘Yoga For Grief’ workshop this past Saturday, and was profoundly moved by the experience!!! My biggest ‘takeaway’ was that we are never finished with the grieving process, and unknown subtle energies accumulate within our very cells and tissues. So, we need to let these energies release in a positive, supportive, and safe way and place. This workshop provides that space. Whether you think you need this healing process or not, trust me, YOU DO!!! I can’t emphasize the importance of this work enough!!! Her next workshop will be offered in May. Stay tuned for the date, and then, sign up as quickly as possible, as space is limited!!!
