Greetings from YFL!!! I am so HAPPY to report that YFL is open for in studio classes again, as of 9/23/20!!! All COVID safety guidelines are still in place, and being followed!!! Virtual classes will continue to be offered for those of you that can’t, or choose not to attend in studio. This is a split week between Sept/Oct, so, it is BONUS WEEK!!! This week’s practice will emphasize the balancing of Sukha (Yin) & Stirha (Yang) energies within the body via pranayama & asana practices!!! Our Sanskrit focus is ‘Narayana’, which emphasizes the energy of ‘new beginnings’ with a beginner’s enthusiasm. Our mudra (hand gesture) is the ‘Grounding’ focus for stabilization, connection, and rooting ourselves firmly. Our meditation focus is ‘Enthusiasm’, and may be focused upon while enjoying the music of Tom Barabas, his ‘Nuages’.
This week’s Yin practice will serve to balance the kidney meridians. You will need a bolster and block for this practice.
The October newsletter will be on your email desk around 10 a.m. on Thursday, October 1st, so watch for that!!!
YFL will be celebrating its 14th anniversary on October 16th!!! This year’s celebration will be a bit different due to COVID restrictions, and a tad egotistical on my part!!! Rather than door prizes, I will be giving away 3-4 of my oil paintings. Each time you attend class in person, or virtually, I will drop your name in the pot for the painting of your choice. I will post pics of my paintings the week of our celebration!!! Stay tuned for further info!!!
