InnerYoga for Balancing the Seasonal Body: Winter

Location: YogaWorks Back Bay, Boston

Take a deep dive inward with the profoundly therapeutic and rejuvenating practices of Yin and InnerYoga.

This passive deeply relaxing workshop is designed to support the vibrancy of kidney chi - the underlying vitality of physical and energetic well-being. It will "de-stress" you and invite your body-mind to feel calm, delicious and renewed. 

The winter season is both the most susceptible time for kidney chi disturbance as well as the most accessible and auspicious time of year to reap its benefits. When kidney chi is harmonious the body is physically resilient and there is an innate trust in life and your own inner knowing in the face of life's challenges.

Kidney chi is thrown out of balance by day to day stress, emotional tumult, and too much "doing" and not enough "being." When kidney chi is out of balance the body-mind is more susceptible to fear, increased stress, colds and flues, disturbed sleeping habits, and joint and lower back issues.

All levels are welcome.

Pure Yin: For Balancing The Seasonal Body – Late Summer

Location: Yoga Tree Valencia

This workshop is a gentle journey into the profoundly therapeutic and rejuvenating method of Yin Yoga.

This deeply relaxing practice will highlight the energy rivers of late summer - the spleen and stomach meridians. These are the pathways of digestion. When they are in harmony, we easily absorb nourishment into our body, mind, and heart - from food, from nature, from other humans, from beauty, and from all that is sacred in our lives. This nourishment brings balance and ease to our being. When out of balance, the spleen and stomach channels increase our tendency for worry and anxiety and disturb our digestion of that which nourishes our well-being.

No experience is required, just a sincere desire to turn inward. Students who are pregnant or injured are welcome to attend.


All levels are welcome.
