Greetings from YFL, and Happy New Year!!! Let us be grateful for a new day, new week, new month, and NEW YEAR!!! 2021 here we come!!! This week, as we return to the mat, from our holiday break, will emphasize the use of hand weights, and body weight for building strength, stamina, and power!!! Our Sanskrit focus is one of gratitude, thankfulness, and gratefulness, or ‘Dhanya Vad’. Our mudra (hand gesture) is the ‘Openness’ position, which enhances opening the bronchial tubes, and promoting deep, efficient breathing!!! It opens the window of your soul. It opens us for what is beautiful and good, and to accept both with thankfulness. Our meditation focus is ‘Dhanya Vad’ (gratitude). The music selection for contemplation is Tom Barabas’ ‘Clouds’ from his ‘Nuage’ CD.
This week’s Yin practice will balance all 7 major chakras. The practice will incorporate seed sound vibrations with the Tibetan bowls, chanting the seed sound, color focus, and physical body alignment with asanas.
It will be a great start to the New Year, and we hope that soon things will begin to return to normal with the distribution of the Covid vaccine. We are looking forward to group gatherings, and events, when the time is right!!!
