Friday Night High On Seasonal Yoga
.
This Friday we will begin exploring this short period of time approaching that falls between Summer and Fall. A very transitional time in the world around us, but also in our bodies.
.
In the Five Element Theory, there are five seasons whose nature is related to the five elements. Late summer is linked to the Element of Earth. In Chinese medicine, the direction the element Earth is associated is CENTER. "We are all around it and it surrounds us."
.
The stomach, spleen and pancreas are the organs associated with this transitional metamorphic time. In class we will concentrate on activating these areas. We will also work on centering the body and mind, calming and grounding ourselves through meditation and breath-work.

Bio of Facilitator

Sarah has been practicing yoga for about a decade. This spring she received her 200 hr Vinyasa Certification at Daya Yoga Studio. Sarah's practice is alignment focused. Sarah believes yoga is capable of healing our bodies as well as our minds. While she practiced yoga for many years, she began to fully understand the benefits when she was injured and experiencing intense lower back pain at the age of 21. From there, Sarah began to study the body and use yoga as a tool to heal and release pain hiding out in small areas all over her body. Sarah's practice is alignment focused, incorporating Hatha and Kundalini and TCM, to achieve a balanced wellness in the body.
