Winter Solstice

Special Edition Yoga Class

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

6 - 7:15pm

This is the time to go inward, to rediscover your intuition, and to nurture yourself. This wonderful darker time allows us to prepare for the expansion and growth that comes in the Spring.

In this special edition class, we will focus on quieting poses and deep stretches to maintain your physical and mental flexibility. There will be a special ceremony to celebrate Winter Solstice and increase of light in upcoming days.

Ayurvedic cookies and hot tea will be served after class.

The word Solstice translates into "Sun stands still." The darkest day of the year, Winter Solstice has been celebrated since ancient times.

The masculine force of the sun must be balanced by the feminine nature of the moon. In winter we see so much more of the moon - making winter a strong feminine season.
