The Triple Effect: Restore, Renew, and Relax!!!


Greetings from YLF!!! We worked hard last week with weight-bearing!!! This week we experience the “Triple Effect” of Restore, Renew, and Relax!!! Yes, it is “Restorative Week on the Mat”!!! Our Sanskrit focus will be “VAYU”, or “Air, Life, Breath”. It represents the energy link to Divine energy. Our mudra for the week is the “Drum Mudra” which promotes calming of the nerves, which I think we can all use with all the recent events with weather, etc. Our music for meditation is by James Hood, and entitled “Imaginary”. I suggest a meditation focus for the week of “Just Relax”.

A reminder that Sophie and I will be hosting a fundraising  Yoga and Meditation event on Sunday, September 24th, for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. We are suggesting donations to the Red Cross, but please feel free to donate to any charity of choice that will help these areas of our country recover from the devastation of these two massive storms.  We will begin with Yoga at 3 p.m., led by Sophie, and I will conduct meditation from 4-4:15 p.m. We will serve tea and cookies following the practice. I also invite you to stay for the FREE Fall Equinox Drum Circle, which will begin at 5 p.m. Bring your own rhythm instrument or borrow one from the studio, and Bring a Friend!!!

We wish you a week of joy, peace, and happiness!!! As always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb
