AYURVEDA BLISS FLOW
balance vata dosha, the air element
Sat Nov 11, 14:30-17
Enjoy a peaceful, blissful state of being by immersing yourself in a yoga session infused with Ayurveda self-care practices to balance vata dosha, the air element. According to Ayurveda, Fall is the season when vata dosha increases in all of us. Are you feeling scattered and fragmented? Do you feel anxious or nervous? Are you always rushing? Are you a multi-tasker? Do you feel overwhelmed? Is it difficult to focus and complete projects? Are you experiencing insomnia or having difficulty sleeping? If you are experiencing any of these things, your Vata dosha may be out of balance.
Join Leigh for a deeply nourishing and relaxing Ayurveda yoga practice to ground and balance your vata dosha. Learn food, ayurvedic herbs, mudras, and lifestyle tips to keep you focused and rooted. Enjoy the gifts of vata dosha in balance – creativity, agility, enthusiasm, insight, clarity, and deep spiritual connection.
SHIFT INTO STILLNESS
fall winter transit
Sun Nov 12, 10-12:30
As we transition from Fall into Winter, nature begins to shift into it’s most yin time of the year, and our bodies and minds start to turn inwards. As we let go of our constant outward activity (yang) and take rest, we embrace the stillness and quietude of Winter. Sometimes this transition can be difficult. Our society and lifestyles may not support us in allowing a time of deep rest in the Winter. We may feel compelled to keep a fully active productive pace, though our bodies and minds need rest. The Fall practices nourish the Metal element and help us gracefully transition to Winter by inviting us to let go, surrender and begin the process of distilling your being to it’s inner essence. According to Chinese Medicine, Fall is the season attend to our lungs and its paired organ, the large intestine, which are both organs related to attachment. In this workshop, Leigh will guide you through a yoga practice to cleanse and tonify the Fall organs, embrace the Autumnal process of shedding, consolidating your energy, internalization, and refinement in preparation for Winter’s stillness.
RESTORATIVE YOGA SOUND HEALING
relax & renew
Sun Nov 12, 15-17
Unwind, rest, and restore your being with a delicious restorative yoga practice designed to nourish the Water element and your Kidneys, our Winter organs. According to Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are seen as the root and foundation of the body–the seed of life. This deep Winter’s rest nourishes our kidneys, consolidating our essential energy, (qi/prana) and preserving our roots. By nurturing and tonifying the kidneys in Winter, we replenish and nourish the sap of body. Join Leigh for this deeply restorative yoga workshop designed to soothe the nervous system, calm the mind, and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. Relax in nourishing yoga poses while singing bowls, tuning forks, and other overtone emitting instruments harmonize your subtle body in a powerfully nourishing sound healing experience. Cultivate inner listening and insight through chanting and meditation.
