Greetings from YFL!!! This week we explore restoration through our practice of asana. It is time to let go, and relax. Our Sanskrit focus is “Siddho Hum”, or the awakening of our own healing power from within, which will bring us to a natural state of perfection, or our “essential quality” for life. The supporting mudra (hand gesture) is for “self-confidence” and “self-awareness”. Plant these thoughts in your heart, and they will provide a rich harvest. This week’s Yin practice will focus upon the hips, so the practice is called “Happy Hips”. We will be sustaining a variety of asana poses for opening our hip joints, and hip extensors, and rotators. As always, this practice is deep, and contemplative, and Deb will also incorporate a beautiful poetry reading.
