Greetings from YFL!!! Happy President’s Day!!! It is time to return to ‘The Wall’ & Beyond!!! This week we will use the wall as our magical tool of alignment, focus, and power!!! Our Sanskrit focus is ‘Sankalpa’, or your ‘Intention’, ‘Resolution’. I challenge you to create just one intent each time you meditate, practice, or as you start your day!!! Our mudra (hand gesture) is the ‘Openness’ position for the hands. This gesture promotes an ‘opening to the window of your soul’, and helps clear the bronchial tubes and makes breathing clear, and more efficient. Our meditation focus is ‘Clarity’. As you listen to this week’s music selection, Yoga Relaxation’s ‘Music for Meditation’, allow the connection to, and flow of your breath, summon clarity of mind, body, and heart.
