‘To the WALL & BEYOND!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! This week we return to ‘THE WALL’. It is a wonderful tool for resistance, focus, and alignment!!! Our Sanskrit focus is one and the same with our mudra (hand gesture). It is ‘SARASWATI’, or the goddess of creativity. This focus helps to balance both the right and left hemisphere of the brain, and promotes creativity via our natural talents. Our meditation focus will be ‘PATIENCE’, and may be contemplated to the CD Yoga for Relaxation-Meditation!!!

Our Yin practice will focus on the balancing of our chakras.

This Friday we will usher in the Spring Season with our centerpiece of focus, and multiple salutes to the sun. We will also celebrate the ‘International Day of Yoga’!!!
