This week’s practice will focus on developing muscle tone and strength with the use of our own body weight, and hand weights. Our Sanskrit focus is ‘AUM Mitraya Namah’, or ‘I invoke the spirit of friendliness’. Our mudra (hand gesture) is the ‘Ganesha’ position for overcoming obstacles along life’s path. The meditation focus is ‘HOPE’, and may be contemplated while listening to Enya’s ‘Watermark’.

This week’s Yin practice will balance the energy of the third eye, or mind’s eye AJNA, the 6th chakra. Sunday’s meditation practice will emphasize the 3rd step of Yoga Nidra.

“There are, it seems two muses: the Muse of Inspiration, who gives us inarticulate visions and desires, and the Muse of Realization, who returns again and again to say, “It is yet more difficult than you thought.” This is the muse of form. It may be then that form serves us best when it works as an obstruction, to baffle us and deflect our intended course. It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”—Wendell Berry

“Without Love, all worship is  burden, all dancing is a chore, all music is mere noise:.—Rumi
