Nature thrives in her cyclical routines. When we begin to align with these rhythms, we become more vibrant, powerful, and radiant. We experience a deeper connection to nature and to the ebb and flow of all of life. The pulse of nature continually shows us our relationship to change and changelessness.
Fall is a time of movement and transition. In Ayurveda (the back-to-basics, natural, yogic approach to wellness), Fall is considered the vata season. As the air gets cooler and drier and the leaves begin to fall, we may experience internal shifts like stiffness, cracking joints, fear, insomnia, dry skin, and seasonal sadness. How you care for yourself this season determines how healthy your body (and mind) will be all winter! Luckily, Ayurveda provides many seasonal shifts we can make in our diet, yoga practice, and lifestyle to help balance the vata in our systems and keep us thriving all Autumn long!
In this workshop, you will experience a combination of lecture, discussion asana and applied practices.

This workshop is appropriate for all bodies - whether you have accumulated tightness in your body from a high workload, sports training or thereality of desk sitting. Come roll away your stress, renew your nervous system and leave feeling relaxed!
