Honoring the deep Water element of Winter and Svadhisthana chakra, we’ll combine the Indian lineage of Vinyasa yoga with Chinese medicine-based Yin yoga, through movement and stillness. Balance energy in a liberating flow for hips and lower back, exploring the edges of effort. Then completely let go and surrender into the longer holds and deep meditative release of yin yoga, a practice that stimulates connective tissues and nourishes joints. In this season of long nights, honor the light within the deepest waters of yourself. All levels of yoga are welcome; experience with vinyasa flow yoga suggested.
Cost: $25 early signup, $30 day of workshop
Note: Workshops are non-refundable and non-transferable.
