Fall Seasonal Yoga + Ayurveda Workshop

Discover health, vitality and balance through Ayurveda, the traditional system of healing from India and a sister science of Yoga. Ayurveda translates into "the art of life" and emphasizes wholesome, natural living to improve your vitality, longevity, and well-being.

The focus of this workshop is staying healthy through Fall + Early Winter, known as "Vata Season" in Ayurveda. ("Vata" describes the energy of movement.) You'll learn the importance of seasonal yoga + food choices, daily routine, and more tips to bring your mind, body, and spirit back into balance to stay healthy and happy all the way through the holiday season.

Rachael will offer an accessible seasonal yoga practice, guided meditation, abhyanga massage, and, as always, we'll sample tasty Ayurvedic treats that you can easily recreate in your own home kitchen!

5Elements Water Flow at Sundara Yoga

5Elements Water Flow is a rejuvenating fluid vinyasa practice, encouraging circular wave motion throughout the body within a soft, slowly flowing sequence. This nourishing and calming practice balances the effects of stress, depletion, and over-stimulation from life or from strong agni (fire) based practices. The circular movements of 5Elements Water Flow lubricate all of the joints in the body, support increased spinal mobility, range of motion, and balance. 5Elements Water Flow is a full body vinyasa practice with an emphasis on shoulder opening, fluid backbends, and the six movements of the spine. Working to move the body as liquid matter, we release old patterns of stress and tightness. All levels are welcome.

*5Elements Flow is a dynamic vinyasa flow practice within the Kunga Yoga methodology developed by Kristin Cooper-Gulak and inspired by the teachings of Ayurveda.
