Join Monica Fauble, Licensed Acupuncturist and Certified Yoga Teacher, for a special seasonal alignment restorative yoga session. Restorative yoga is a style of yoga that encourages rest and relaxation. Using props to minimize tension in the body, we will invite greater ease in the spirit and the nervous system.
In this special seasonal alignment workshop, we will explore the energy of winter according to Chinese Medicine. The energetic direction of winter in Chinese Medicine theory is “storage”. Just as the animals and plants store and conserve energy in wintertime, we will explore how to preserve and protect our energy so that we can find more connection to our own inner wisdom during the darker shorter days.
Along with a short talk about how to best harmonize with the energy of winter, participants will receive handouts with seasonal health tips and journaling prompts to help them make the most of autumn. The majority of our time together during this workshop will be spent practicing seasonally-inspired restorative yoga postures that will help you explore the energy of this season.
While most yoga practices work with tension and release, strength and stretch, restorative yoga aims to thoughtfully set up each posture with lots of props and support in order to aid the body in relaxing more deeply and letting go.
This practice will feature the use of blocks, blankets and a bolster (a large yoga cushion) to encourage the release of tension and the recalibration of deep rest.
We will stay close to the ground during this practice. During this session you will be either seated or lying down with the support of blankets and props. Studio 34 Yoga will provide all of the props that you need to find comfort and to create lots of support for yourself. Loose, comfortable clothing in which you can move easily is recommended.
Space for this event is limited. Please register in mindbody to reserve your spot.
The next workshop in this series will be held in Spring 2024.
