Spring Awakening: Ayurvedic Flow
with Stephanie Ford
Thursday April 16th 6:30-8:30 pm
Spring is the most dynamic, energetic, and creative time of the year. Nature wakes up from her resting place full of vitality, which she uses to manifest her creative vision after a long winter sleep. With sufficient rest in the wintertime you may be feeling the “Spring Fever” or “Pulse” that pushes you to stretch or be physical, cleanse, start creative projects, or sow new seeds. Spring represents “The morning of the year ” and is considered the most fertile time to give birth to new life and ideas. Come join me to shake off those winter blues with a cleansing practice reflecting the water and fire elements to rejuvenate the mind and body.
