Back to Basics Hatha Yoga


Greetings from YFL!!! We might as well love Mondays with  “positive energy, positive vibes, and positive lives”!!! They are a fresh start to a new week with gratitude for being alive and well!!! We want to help you maintain this sense of positivity and “fresh start” mentality, as you return to the mat at YFL!!! This week will be Classic Hatha, and our emphasis will be returning to the basics. The practice is very balanced with seated, standing, supine, and prone asana flows with an emphasis on connection to the breath, and a deep sense of body awareness. The Sanskrit focus is RAM (pronounced RUM), which is the mantra for the third chakra, Manipura, our solar plexus or navel chakra. Chanting this mantra helps promote good energy flow through this wheel of strength and power. Our mudra is also supportive of this chakra, and will provide energy to our pelvis, bladder, and kidneys. Our reflexology point will also emphasize the cleansing of our left and right kidney. Our meditation focus is Inner Strength, and is set to the music of Bhakti Hreem.

This is the last week to join in the current 5-week Meditation I class with Deb. This is week two, and we meet from 7:30-8:30 p.m. The cost is $70. The deadline for registration for The Meditation and Chakra YTT Intensive weekend is 5/6. The cost is $195. If you need further information please contact Deb via email, call, or at the studio. The May YFL newsletter will be delivered to your email inbox this Sunday, May 1st at about 10 a.m. It will cover the 8 principles of moving the body safely through its range of motion, and will focus on the proper execution of the plank pose with single leg lift. As always, it will include handy info on yoga related products, recipes, and nutrition, and the quick six practice for the month.

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