Greetings from YFL!!!

Happy first day of summer!!! This is Classic Hatha week, and we will usher in summer with our annual Summer Solstice practice. This will include standing flow with Sun Salutations and Warrior I vinyasa, standing balances, and a strong seated, supine, and prone sequence. Our Sanskrit focus is Surya Namaskar, or a salute to the sun, as we honor this new season’s beginning. Our mudra is Dhanya, or the classic meditation hand gesture. Come in out of the heat, and enjoy practicing in the cool with cool yogis and yoginis at our YFL sanctuary!!! Our meditation focus is “Santosha”, or contentment, and is set to the music of Deva and Miten’s “Kama Mudra”.

There is still time to register for the “Playing with Props” 2-hour workshop with Leslie, Kim, and Rachel!!! It is this Saturday, 6/25, from 1-3 p.m. This is a great opportunity to improve and enhance your understanding of the use of props. It is a bargain, at just $20!!!

Sophie will be offering some wonderful Ayurvedic workshops this summer and fall. Details and registration are ongoing at the studio.

The first seasonal “Drum Circle” event is fast approaching!!! Bring your rhythm Saturday, 7/16 @ 5:00 p.m. Deb will set the heartbeat with her drum, and everyone will find their rhythmic pulse, and ¬†join in with an instrument of choice. We encourage drums, but if you have tambourines, shakers, bells, bowls, or chimes, then that will work as well. Did I mention that this event is FREE!!! Drum circles bring us together through the vibrational energy of sound, and create a meditative, unifying experience. Come give it a try!!!

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