‘Weight Time’!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! It is ‘Weight Time’!!! We will strengthen, tone, and sculpt this week with the use of our body weight, and small hand weights (use small water bottles, if you don’t have weights)!!! Our Sanskrit focus is ‘YAM’, which is pronounced Yum. This is the seed sound for the heart chakra, and invokes the energy of ‘Universal Compassion’. Our hand gesture (mudra) is the ‘APAN’, or relief mudra. It is for detoxification and cleansing, and the releasing of any type of burden that we might be carrying in our mind, body, or heart. Our meditation focus is ‘Self Care’, and may be contemplated, while listening to Michael Hoppe’s ‘Silence of the Stars’. The virtual class offering will also feature weights!!! The Sunday meditation with Deb will emphasize ‘Staying Grounded’.

This week’s Yin class will focus on the hips, and opening their range of motion, so it is ‘Happy Hips’ week for Yin!!!

Wed: Virtual ‘Weight Time’

YFL will be CLOSED Fri & Sat in observance of the 4th of July holiday. Normal class schedule resumes on Monday, July 6th!!!  Have safe, and wonderful holiday!!!

 Sun: Meditation w/Deb-‘Staying Grounded’

Props for the week: Block, Strap, Weights ( or water bottles, NO CANS!!!)

As always, we can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb

Classic Hatha Week + Yin!!!

Greetings from YFL!!! We are entering our second full week of LIVE classes at the studio!!! It was so wonderful seeing all of you in person this week, and truly appreciate your support during quarantine, and afterwards!!!

This week is Classic Hatha week, which will emphasize ‘Flow + Power’. Our Sanskrit focus is AUM Made Pade Hum, or ‘May all beings be happy, and may all beings be free from suffering’. Our mudra (hand gesture) is for ‘Vitality’, and increased energy and movement, or the ‘Pick Me Up’. The meditation focus is ‘Slow Down’, and may be focused upon, while listening to the ‘Yoga Meditation CD’s, ‘Relaxation’ song.

Yin practice this week will focus upon working the full range of motion of the spine, or ‘Spinal Bliss’.

Our new Spring Schedule has been posted, so please consult the website schedule page.

Virtual Class #13-Let’s Restore

Greetings from YFL!!! As we prepare to re-open YFL, I would like to express my extreme gratitude for the continuing financial support that so many of you provided the studio during quarantine.My heart is truly touched!!!  Newsom gave the OK for phase 3 opening of gyms, fitness centers, and yoga studios, as early as 6/12/20. Now we are waiting to see if Riverside Co. meets the regional variance qualifications for re-opening such facilities. As soon as the Riverside Co. Health Director says its OK, then we will open!!! I anticipate opening this Friday, 6/12!!! If you registered for classes on 6/8-6/11, I will transfer those reservations to the following week!!! I AM VERY EXCITED THAT WE WILL OPEN VERY SOON!!!  Before attending class, please refer to the Covid19 Guideline Page on the website menu bar,

This week’s practice will feature-Rest, Restore, and Renew!!! So grab your block, strap, blanket, and bolster. If you don’t own a bolster, then construct one with your blanket and pillow. Our hand gesture (mudra) is ‘Varhakam’ or mudra for transformation, and the art of change. I will demonstrate it on the video. It refreshes the spirit, and brings harmony and balance to you. Our Sanskrit focus is ‘Sattvic’, or the energy and action of ‘calm understanding’. Our meditation focus is ‘CALMNESS’, and may be contemplated while listening to Tom Barabas’s ‘Moon Dust’.

It is almost time to see one another face to face, and practice together in the ‘whole’!!! We simply can’t wait to see you on the mat!!!—Namaste’, Deb

If there are two of you per household the fee would be $140.
