Fall is a Season of inner transformation. Fall is the time when nature pulls its energy inwards and encourages us to cultivate grounding and inner focus. Fall is associated with physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation and is a time for letting go and releasing what no longer serves us.
According to the sister science of Yoga, known as Ayurveda (Science of Long Life) fundamental elements that make up the Universe – space (akasha), air (vayu), fire (tejas), earth (prithvi) and water (apah)—also make up the human physiology. Ayurveda looks at the elements from the point of what they do in the physiology rather than what they are and describes three psychophysiological energies called Doshas. There are three Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each is mainly a combination of two elements. Vata Dosha is made up of air and space. Pitta Dosha is made up of fire and water and Kapha Dosha is made up of water and earth. For good health and well-being, the three Doshas need to be in balance, otherwise ill health will manifest.
In this yoga class, you will learn and yoga practice a thoughtfully-designed sequence of poses (asana), breathwork (pranayama), energy seals (mudra), and energy locks (bandha) to bring about balance through use of the physical body (Hatha Yoga). This will be an active yoga practice with some lecture. Information will be shared as to what physical, mental and emotional imbalances can occur if the focused Dosha is “out of whack,” and the Practice will open your eyes as to how to bring yourself back into balance through a Yoga Therapy regimen.
