  • Fall Yoga Detox: An Ayurvedic Flow

    IMG_4441sf5bsmall

    with Stephanie Ford

    October 19th 2-4 pm

    The fall season in Ayurveda is associated with the Vata Dosha which is composed of the ether and air elements that promote movement and expansion.  As the fall creeps in and the summer glow fades it seems Mother Nature is once again inviting us to come inside and enjoy the abundance of food, colors, new projects and creative opportunities.  You might appreciate spending extra time outside to witness swirls of sunset colored leaves blowing , admire the pumpkins in the gardens, and observe all the other unbelieveable colors unfolding in Nature.  As Vata like qualities come into our lives it’s helpful to embrace physical practices such as grounding, stabilizing, warming flow sequences.  Longer held postures help create heat and grounding allowing an inward focus for balance.  Come join me for a seasonal flow to bring us into the beautiful season of autumn!
