Greetings from YFL!!! It is time for our Spring Schedule, which begins today, March 19 and extends through June 17!!! The Class Schedule remains exactly as it was for the Winter Schedule. However, we have many new, and upcoming events, so check them out below!!!
This week’s practice is “Wall Work”!!! We will return our mats to the wall baseboard, and utilize this wonderful prop as a tool of resistance, alignment, and focus. Our Sanskrit focus is “Bandha”, or energy lock, of which there are three. The root, core, and chin lock. They help maintain our energy flow through the spine, and prevent loss of energy from the body during our asana practice. Our hand gesture (mudra) is the “Ushas”, which connects us “to all things good”!!! The meditation focus is “Be Present”, and the accompanying music for your contemplative practice is the Karma Mudra Chant by Deva & Miten. This week’s practice will give you an energy and power boost.
Our Spring Equinox Drum Circle is Sunday, March 25th, from 5-6 p.m. Bring a friend and a rhythm instrument (or borrow one from Deb). This event is FUN and FREE!!!
Sophie’s Yoga for Grief workshop will Saturday, April 7th, from 1-3 p.m. The cost is $25, and is filling quickly. Call or email the studio to register for your attendance. firstname.lastname@example.org or 951-676-8285.
Our annual Yoga-Hike to the Santa Rosa Plateau will be Friday, April 27th, from 11:30-1:30. Carol will guide our hike, and I will lead the Yoga practice.

It will be another great week at YFL, and as always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb
