See you at the WALL!!!


Greetings and Happy Spring!!!  This week we usher in spring, a total solar eclipse, and a full moon!!! Our practice will once again focus on utilizing the wall as a prop for resistance. This will intensify our muscle engagement, and strengthen our use of the asana. Our Sanskrit focus is “Abhyasa”, or “The Practice”, and our mudra is the classic “Anjali”, or “Prayer Hand Gesture”. I received great reviews on the David Lanz music for meditation last week, so I will select another of his works for your meditation. This week’s meditation will focus on “Prana”, or “life-force”, the breath. Have a great week into spring. Our Spring schedule begins this Sunday, and I am happy to say there are

Time to restore, renew, and relax!!!

photo-570  Greetings from YFL!!! We worked hard last week with our new “Iron Flow” practice, so this week our emphasis will be on restoring, renewing, and relaxing through our asana practice. You will need a bolster and a block to assist you in the asana sequence. Our Sanskrit focus is “Sutra”, which is an aphorism or short, thread of wisdom. The mudra is “Kubera”, for seeking or setting a goal. Our meditation is to focus on what you consider to be “Paradise”, and the music accompaniment is David Lanz’s, “Blue Largo”. Have a fabulous week, and as always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat.—Namaste’, Deb P. S.-Sophie’s “Ayurvedic Detox” workshop is this Saturday, 2-4 pm., 3/14 @ $25.
