The Fall Equinox is the point when day and night are equal in length. The Earth is balanced between the two extremes of the year: the Midsummer Solstice, the longest day, and the Midwinter Solstice, the longest night. The Autumn Equinox is rich with symbolism that we’ll integrate in to our yoga practice so that you can integrate it into your life. By aligning your own energies to the natural rhythms of the earth and the suns' cycles you can more fully enjoy rest, contemplation and renewal during the dormant phase of the year we’re moving into.
Yin Yoga is a soft, still, deep, and nurturing seated practice. It goes beyond stretching the muscles. It opens and creates space in the body while cultivating elasticity in the facial system. During this practice we'll tap into the meridian lines (channels that carry chi, or energy through the body) that are associated with the season of fall. Through this practice we will create space in the mind and body that will help ease us into a rich and restful fall. We’ll end with Yoga Nidra- a guided form of deep relaxation. No experience with this style of Yoga required, it is a very friendly practice that welcomes all.
