Wall Week @ YFL!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! It is time to meet one another at the Wall!!! We will use its resistance to enhance our alignment, strength, and focus. Our Sanskrit focus is “Bhakti”, or the “Path of Devotion”.  Our hand gesture practice is the classic JNANA mudra. This evokes the energy and understanding of Universal Knowledge. Your music for meditation is Enya’s “Watermark”. Your meditation focus is “Just Breathe”.

Intro to Yoga begins tomorrow evening at 7:30 p.m. There is still time to register. Sophie will be offering a workshop on dealing with grief in our lives from an Ayurvedic/Yogic perspective. Stay tuned for the details.

Spring is near, and the March newsletter will be available on your email desk next Wednesday, 3/1 @ 10 a.m. So, watch for it!!!

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

Give me an R, R, and another R!!! Relax, Restore, and Renew Week @ YFL!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! It is definitely time to take our 3 Rs to the mat this week!!! We had a most rigorous practice last week, and now it is time to let the body, mind, and heart Renew, Restore, and Relax!!! That is our physical focus as we practice this week. Our Sanskrit focus is Om Tat Sat, or “Thou Art That”, which indicates our intimate connection to the radiance and light of Higher Consciousness.  AUM (vibration of creation), Tat (radiance and light perceived in deep meditation), and Sat (Higher Consciousness). The mudra (hand gesture) focus is the “Ushas”, or connection to “all things good”. Such a beautiful practice for celebrating this week that focuses on LOVE. Practicing love for oneself, so that we may graciously extend the gesture to others in our lives. Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

The studio will BE CLOSED on Monday, 2/19, in observance of President’s Day. However, we are open on Friday and Saturday, 2/16 & 2/17, of the holiday weekend!!!

The next Intro to Yoga four week session will begin on 2/20. We will meet for four consecutive Tuesday evenings from 7:30-8:30 p.m. The cost is $40, and registration is still open. Email or call the studio to register.

Also, remember to check-in, and like Yoga For Life on FaceBook,  whenever you attend class!!! It helps promote the studio, and we would be most appreciative of your comments on the experience at YFL, either on FaceBook or Yelp!!!

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

Let’s Weigh In!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! It’s February, and time to “Weigh In”!!! This week as we step onto the sacred space of our yoga mats, we incorporate “bearing our own body weight” and the use of hand weights. It is all about strengthening, toning, and sculpting. We will also add some new components for strengthening the knee joints to help prevent misalignment of the knee cap. Our Sanskrit focus is the Universal Salutation of “Namaste”. This beautiful term means that I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, we are one. Our mudra (hand gesture) focus for the first week of February is the “Grounding Gesture”. The meditation focus in “Namaste”, and set to Thierry David’s “Zen World”.

Remember!!! We have gift certificates available for Valentine’s Day.  Just check-in with Deb at the office desk!!! Our YFL monthly newsletter posted on 2/1/18. If you would like to subscribe, please send Deb your preferred email address to
