Yoga, Journaling and Stillness for the Summer Solstice
The Summer Solstice is the midway point of the year, the longest day, and the shortest night; its energy and radiance is pregnant with a sense of possibility and space for joy.
As the sun appears to stand still before its light begins to move in the opposite direction, we too can stand still, take a pause and reflect – on the present, as well as the past and the future.
With the energy of the Summer Solstice, we honour the yang aspects of life: the Sun, heat, dynamic movement and intention. We also remember and invite the yin: the moon, cool, stillness, reflection.
To mark this special time of the year, this 2-hour workshop balances together these energies through the combination of hatha-inspired yoga, meditation, pranayama, chanting and journaling; moving through uplifting postures, movement and singing; to stillness quiet and reflection.
In Ayurveda, the sister health-system of yoga – this balance is the key to good health.
A beautiful blend of herbal teas will be offered as part of this ceremony.
