Greetings from YFL!!! The rain through a loop in our schedules, but it won’t be returning for a couple of weeks…so back to the mat!!! We relish the rain, although we don’t like to drive in it, if we can avoid the stress!!! We have a full schedule of classes ready and waiting for you. Don’t forget to try Summer’s NEW CLASSES on Tuesday evenings, and Wednesday afternoon. She is skilled, enthusiastic, humorous, and knowledgable, according to the feedback that I have received from her students!!!
OUr Sanskrit focus for the week is Manipura, or “The Jewel”. This is the 3rd chakra, or our solar plexus area, and controls our goals, willpower, physical power, and stamina. This week’s Classic Hatha practice will help create balance in this energy wheel, as we challenge our selves to move fluidly with grace and power. We will also test our skills of balancing in some new ways this week!!! Our hand gesture is “Dhanya”, or the mudra for contemplation. Our meditation focus is “planting seeds” for growth in our lives. The supporting music for the meditation is David Lanz’s Blue Paradise CD, and the selection is “LUNA”. Very appropriate with the Full Wolf Red Moon, and full lunar eclipse on 1/20.
This week’s Yin practice will focus on promoting “Good Digestion”.
Sophie’s Yoga For Grief workshop is soon approaching, 2/23, from 1-3 p.m., and the cost is $25. Sign up ASAP, as space is limited, and it always fills to capacity!!!
Kim’s Reiki I training is next Sunday, 1/27!!! This is such a valuable tool for ALL of us!!! I highly recommend taking this course, at the very least, for yourself!!! Contact Deb to register!!!
The annual Yoga-Hike with Carol and Deb will be on Friday, April 12th, at the Santa Rosa Plateau. We will meet at 8:30 a.m. Stay funded for further details!!!
It will be another wonderful week at YFL, and as always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!-Namaste’, Deb
