Let’s go “off the wall” this week!!!


Wow!!! Last week was fantastic, and this week will also be great!!! We completed our first 5-Day Teacher Training Intensive, and kicked-off our YFL 9th anniversary!!! We will be celebrating through Friday, 10/23, so come in and join the fun!!!

I will meet you at the wall this week, as we once again, utilize the wall as a prop of resistance. Our mudra is “Ganesh”, or the hand gesture for overcoming obstacles along our path of life. The Sanskrit focus is “Abhyasa”, or The Practice.

Our music focus is Moon Dust from Tom Barabas, and his “Sedona Suite”, as we focus on our meditation thought of “BREATHE”.
