Winter Wellness: Yin Yoga Practice
As we transition towards nature’s most introspective season, much of the natural world moves inward. The sun rises later and sets earlier. Observing the quietness of nature, we can reflect that Winter is a time to rest and replenish. A time to draw inward and gather and store our energy.
In this extended yin practice we will apply static, gentle pressure in long holds to build fluidity and elasticity throughout your connective tissues. This workshop is focused on yin yoga poses for the hips and spine. The yin practice promotes strength and the mobility of Qi (vital energy) flow throughout the meridian systems. We will be specifically targeting enhancing and balancing Kidney Qi.
For many of us our lifestyles during the holiday season can feel really yang (read active and social). It’s often a time of year filled with parties, family commitments, and gatherings with friends, late nights, the list goes on. Optimal health is finding a balance – harmonizing our inner life with nature and nurturing our unique rhythms.
In this workshop I’ll be sharing some soul-nourishing practices that can support you in clearing some internal space and taking time out to reset and restore healthy rhythms. Taking a “pause” amidst the momentum of the holiday season deepens our capacity to listen to what we need in order to nurture ourselves and others. Let’s move into the holiday season together—with ease.
Yin and Live Music
Join me for a special Yin yoga event this holiday season featuring live music from two local artists, Jillian Walker of Kuinka and Will Barrett of Noisywaters. I will guide us through a slow and sweet yin sequence while Jillian and Will will blend the sounds of their cello and harp to provide an immersive sound experience. Afterwards, we will connect over tea and enjoy being in community with the Three Moon Collective, a local group dedicated to hosting wellness events like this one.

Urban Zen: Mindful Yin Yoga, Reiki, and Breath Work
Join me on one Sunday each month for a special, 90 minute class. Each session is an integrated combination of yin yoga, reiki, essential oils, and breath work that will facilitate relaxation and calm. The yin practice promotes strength and the mobility of Qi (vital energy) flow through static, gentle pressure in long holds to build fluidity and elasticity throughout your connective tissues. We will combine the yin practice with elements of breath work and reiki (energy work), which can support decreased stress, enhanced creativity, and greater focus. Ideal for anyone craving healing and relaxation, each monthly class will deliver a calming, soothing experience and give you tools that you can take with you off the mat and into your daily life.
