Yoga is the practice of tolerating the consequences of being yourself…

Low Squat (Malasana)

The root chakra, positioned at the base of your spine, houses the raw, static life force energy known as Kundalini. Also known as Muladhara in Sanskrit, or first chakra it governs your “survival instincts” and is associated with red — the color of vitality and energy. When the first chakra is open and balanced, you feel grounded and at ease with the world around you.

Malasana is also a grounding pose that stimulates the apana vayu, or the downward-flowing eliminating prana energy. By tapping into this energy, the yogi can deal with whatever physical, spiritual or emotional issues are holding him/her back.


The first chakra is about trust and learning to trust the world when your initial reaction is fear. Feeling safe and grounded in your surroundings, community, family is key to healing yourself.


I am grounded, safe and secure.

This low squat also focuses on the pelvis and allows you to be open and receptive physically, emotionally, and energetically in order to accept yourself fully.

Malasana also balances our second chakra Svadhisthana.

Located in the lower abdomen between the navel and the genitals is the energy centre of our Sacral Chakra. Connected to our sciatic nerve and offer referred as the “Seat of Life”, our Sacral Chakra is our focal point of change, emotional connection, pleasure and balance.

Within the element of water and the gifts of Yin and Yan, we find balance between our masculine and feminine energy and we come home to our natural expression of sexuality and sensuality. Allow yourself to be open and simultaneously share with the deeper aspects of your being.


The life lesson in the second chakra involves replacing guilt with forgiveness and acceptance, especially in the areas of sexual relationships.


I accept and forgive myself.

How to get into Malasana:

a). Come to stand with your feet about mat’s width apart.

b). Bend the knees and lower your butt toward the floor to come into a squat.

c). It’s natural for your toes to want to turn out and that’s ok, but don’t overdo it. Eventually, you’re working toward keeping the feet closer to parallel.

d). Take your upper arms inside your knees and bend the elbows to bring the palms together into (Anjali mudra ( prayer position 🙏🏼 )

c). Try to bring your hands to your heart center with the forearms parallel to the floor, allowing the pressure of your elbows to open the knees slightly.

The Quieter You Become, The More You Can Hear…

Once the storm is over you will not remember, how you made it through. Managing to survive became an art. You could find yourself wondering if the storm is even over. But one thing is certain…

When you come out the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in.

Last but not least:

Be patient in the storm and focus on the sunshine after.

Namaste 🙏🏼

Do what you love to do…

No matter how many obligations or self acquired responsibilities you have, find space to what drives you and ignites the fire within your Soul. Do not negotiate for anything or anyone what activates the light within the chamber of your heart towards self love or love to others, because at the end who pushes you away consciously or unconsciously is being guided by an ego who will always work on embracing self oriented unilateral satisfactions.




With love and always from the light Glenda ❤️

The Heart Love Recordings…

Love yourself enough to take actions required for your happiness… enough to cut yourself loose from the drama-filled past…enough to set high standards for relationships… enough to feed your mind and body in a healthy manner… enough to forgive yourself…enough to move on.

-Steve Maraboli


Hunting for the good stuff, when you arise in the morning.

Today begins a new day from a new week in your life.

Sit down with a paper sheet and grab a pen to embrace a short exercise that will enlighten your day.

Ask yourself;

If burdens are heavy why should I keep carrying them over my shoulders?

Then let them go.

That’s it !

Release yourself!

Close your eyes and imagine a helium ballon where you are able to place them all (your burdens) in and you will free yourself from the mental slavery of holding on to them.

Now release the cord between the ballon and you, let it go to the universe.

For instance watch how those burdens leave from a sacred temple which is the physical body.

Relax your shoulders, draw in your shoulder blades all the way towards the tail bone, with the crown of your head facing towards the heavens.

Close your eyes and allow your attention to your heart.

Place both hands over that sacred temple.

Allow your attention towards your forehead (wisdom body, intuition, intellect) make a visualization of how that small engine commands every breath you take and every movement you make.

Find a small light (find it) is there. Allow your attention to your breath and while you inhale feel how your hands shelter the chamber of your heart.

When you exhale anything that is not in alignment to peace and calmness go away allowing the light from your intellect expand and encompass all over your body.

The chamber of your heart blooms like a lotus flower at the surface of clear water, after embracing the darkest adversity down at the bottom of a pond.

Hold on only to gratitude for another day alive, that is the best gift found when you find yourself every morning after opening your eyes.

Last but not least;

When There Is Sun Within The Soul.

Fall seven times, stand up eight. Allow your faith to be bigger than your fear. Remember that the things you take for granted, someone else’s is praying for.

Wherever you go, no matter the weather always bring your own Sunshine. Stop watering the weeds in your life and start watering the flowers. The crowd will try to make you change and retreat.

You are a Warrior, Warriors don’t give up, they don’t back down.

The Warrior only retreats to rest and become stronger, because the warrior knows how to choose a battle.

Allow yourself to be a beginner, no one starts off being excellent.

Semperlee Yoga is celebrating its second year during July and August of a mission of love based on community service, providing resilience through yoga.

There are no words to express the gratitud for all the beautiful Souls that had arrived to my life at the yoga’s classroom and through this blog.

Stay tuned for more to be shared.

Last but not least;

How rare to be born with a name of love…

What challenges await that I must face.

Listening to the above I must embrace.

Two years ago I walked this way… After leaving behind yesterday’s pain.

Without a trace there are not regrets…

from where I’ve been, instead with gratitud towards others beings.

While each experience has opened hearts. No choices called to live again by bouncing back instead of break.

That’s how strong is a Warrior presence spreading the sacred fire of a violet essence.


“Never Give Up”

I see the light of a thousand suns, but not so bright as the light within.

Special gratitude and recognition to Ana I. Rivera, Jazmin Crespo, SGM Lopez, William, Col Miranda, MAJ Aquino, Juan, Roberto Zayas, SGT Serrano, Col Romero, Israel and BG Burgos, Jose for believing in me and their unconditional support during these last two years. Two them will be dedicated this coming anniversary.

But to the most important and wonderful source, our Father in Heaven, for his constant blessing demonstrated through a task force of angels that are constantly signing their presence as above so below.

In order to support this massive awakening of the Christ Consciousness within people’s hearts.

Happy Birthday Semperlee Yoga🎉
