With the strong change of season into autumn we all undergo unrecognized seasonal stressors impacting everything from our nervous system to our digestion to our beautiful hearts- Ugh. This workshop gives you delicious tools to nourish you up and keep you balanced in body-mind- spirit through the season’s characteristics of decompose and dissolution. You’ll learn Yoga Asana (movement) and Pranayama (breathing technique) connected to Ayurvedic (Life Wisdom) (doshas/constitutions) along with food + daily rituals to build your agni (Digestive fire) to help digest food, thought and emotion and support the immunity of your body, heart, and spirit as we move into a windy and cooler seasons.
