Let us know if you have any questions about these upcoming workshops:

Living Simply with the Seasons: Yoga and Selfcare for Summer

Adjusting our routines and lifestyle choices with the changing seasons is the simplest way to maintain our well-being. Through the healing systems of Yoga and Ayurveda, we will explore various ways to help you rediscover your body’s innate wisdom.

The transition from Spring to Summer is marked by the peak of nature’s growth during the year. Summer, a time of play and creativity, where long, light sun-filled days and lazy afternoons are plenty, has its challenges too. The increase in activity during the Summer invites us to find more pause, to discover ways to stay cool and calm in moments when we can “overheat” (Pitta dosha) and to balance the intensity and expansion of the summer (Vata dosha) with grounding and mellowing.

The workshop will begin with about 60 minutes of guided, cooling yoga and breath practice, aligned to the Summer season. Gentle assists and aromatherapy will be incorporated so you feel nurtured and replenished. You’ll explore the importance of seasonal yoga, pranayama and meditation practice, plus key diet and lifestyle changes, appropriate herbs to use and recipes that can be used to bring about optimal health. All levels of practice are welcome!

What to bring: your questions + curiosities, a journal, layers, water and yoga mat.

3.5 hours of continuing education available for Yoga teachers.
