Today's 1 hour Yin practice is focused on helping you and your body transition from one season to another with ease. As we approach the equinox, our minds and bodies often undergo a period of excessive worry, unreasonable concern about the future, excess gas/bloating and digestive disorders. As we enter Fall here in the Northern Hemisphere, that means we are entering the Ayurvedic Vata season - the season of excess air, worry, overwhelm, dryness.
The best way to assist your body in transitioning is to engage in grounding practices like Yin Yoga; eat warm, cooked foods (root vegetables that ground us); engage in more pranayama or regulated breathing exercises and meditate. All of these help us link back to the earth, ground us and help our bodies and minds return to balance. In this practice we will focus on the Spleen/Stomach meridians to bring the earth element into balance and boost our digestion. Enjoy and join Patrick the Kitty Boy and I for this equinox practice!
