About the Event
We’re halfway from the Summer Solstice to the Winter Solstice, and we’re starting to wind down, turning that bright, sunny energy into something more subdued and reflective. This fall Yin Yoga sequence celebrates our fire while transitioning us toward focusing on our roots. You’ll start by facing the sky as if to catch those last summer rays, then ground and lengthen to celebrate growth. You’ll finish by surrendering your body to the earth. This sequence also subtly works your hips to release lingering emotions.
Energetically, autumn is associated with the metal element and the Large Intestine meridian which helps us clear what doesn’t serve us physically, mentally, and spiritually. Throughout this sequence, you’ll draw attention to your abdominal organs — so consider what you’re letting go as another solar year comes to a close. The Large Intestine Meridian’s yang counterpart is the Lung Meridian so we will incorporate pranayama.
Utilize the change of seasons as an opportunity to assess where you are, clarify how you got here, and to feel the feels, and drop the stories. As you settle into a yin shape, we connect to the inspiration of the seasonal change of summer to the cooler fall temperatures.
