I’m thrilled to be teaching this Fall in the YoDa Festival! Join me for my workshops at the festival and nourish your body and mind with yoga practices infused with Ayurveda self-care practices to bring balance to your being and life.
AYURVEDA BLISS FLOW
balance vata dosha, the air element
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 an 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.
OPEN THE WINGS OF THE HEART
shoulder openers & backbends
This powerful backbend sequence eloquently opens your heart by unlocking the habitual holding patterns in your shoulders. The key to freedom is in opening up your wings so that your heart can soar! Let’s untangle the knots in your neck and shoulders. Often tension in the shoulders contributes to a loss of a connection to the heart, the seat of consciousness, compassion and wisdom. As you open the shoulders and engage the supportive muscles of the back body in backbends, you will awaken the natural radiance of your heart and infuse your being with joy!
In this workshop learn how to:
-Release tension in the shoulders from sitting in front of the computer or the cell phone
-Discover the supportive muscles of the back body
-Open your lungs and heart to enjoy the full exhilaration of backbends!
– Awaken your voice to fully express sound from the heart
