Greetings from YFL!!! This week we return “To the Wall and Back”!!! We will be utilizing the wall as our prop for resistance, alignment, strength, and stability!!! Our Sanskrit focus for the week is “Sadhana”, or the discipline of practice, and to accomplish, usually within a group setting of like-minded practitioners. The mudra focus or hand gesture is the “Let if Flow” or “Relax”. Our meditation focus will be “Let if Flow”, and is set to the beautiful music of Tom Barabas’s “Sedona Suite”…”Moon Dust”.
Next week begins the Fall Session at YFL, and I am excited to announce the addition of a new instructor at the studio. Nick Angus will be joining our teaching staff. He is a 200 hour registered instructor with Yoga Alliance, and a high school student. He will be offering “Yoga for Teen Athletes” on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 6:45-7:45 a.m. So, send your student athletes to this wonderful cross training opportunity with Nick. His classes will begin on 9/25!!! Otherwise our schedule will remain the same.
