welcome & namaste,

Today is Day One of our Vata Season Immersion (More details below ⬇️)

This first practice includes a Hand Mudra for grounding energy, a breath the calm the nervous system, some warm up movements and a restorative yoga inversion posture for deep rest and is great for inducing sleep. Seriously, this is a great pose to take up before bed or if you're someone who wakes up in the middle of the night. 

You can join our Vata Season Immersion this November 22-26 or catch it anytime on this Playlist: YOUTUBE PLAYLIST

What is Vata? This ancient Sanskrit term describes the "dosha" that relates to the air element. Vata season can elevate this element within our selves which can lead to feelings of anxiety, nervousness, panic, fear, inconsistency. Feeling overwhelmed. It can cause light, interrupted sleep or insomnia which is one of the main focuses of this particular practice.

There are so many more wonderful grounding, calming and soothing practices to bring our vata back into balance and we are going to go into a deep dive into these tools from the Yoga & Ayurveda traditions over this 5-Day Immersion!

Sign-up for the updates and be the first to hear about updates on the challenge!

"I liked that there was a theme to each day's classes with a different Chakra explored each day and the element associated with that particular Chakra. It was nice to have both of you teaching classes and also having guest teachers too."
