‘To The Wall’ (3/15-3/20/21)

Greetings from YFL!!! Happy Daylight Savings Time!!! This week is ‘To the Wall’ on the mat!!! We use the wall as a fantastic tool of focus, alignment, and power generation!!! Our Sanskrit focus is ‘Yampasham’, or ‘To calm down, and find a place where you can think over a problem in peace and quiet. This is also our ‘new mudra’, or hand gesture for the week!!! Our meditation focus is ‘calm down’, and may be contemplated while listening to Kevin Kern’s, ‘Into the Veil’. This week’s Yin practice will focus on poses to open, and balance the ‘Solar Plexus’ Chakra, or ‘Manipura’.

Triple ‘R’ Week-Rest, Renew, and Restore (3/8-3/13/21)

Greetings from YFL!!! It is Triple ‘R’ week, thus we will be restoring, renewing, and relaxing on the mat with lots of props!!! Our Sanskrit focus is ‘Prana’, or ‘Life Force’, the energy that moves us, and maintains our vitality!!! The mudra (hand gesture) is a new one, ‘Vismaya’. This is the hand position for gathering clear and deep perception, and faith in the benevolence of the Universe. Our meditation focus is ‘Patience’, and the music selection is ‘A Moment in Time’ by Ann Sweeten. This week’s Yin practice will promote a healthy digestive system.
