Autumn Equinox Detox and Cleanse Yoga Workshop

“Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night; and thus he would never know the rhythms that are at the heart of life.” ~Hal Borland

SEPTEMBER 21ST 1-4PM

 

The autumn equinox marks the arrival of the season of fall, traditionally seen as a period of change. Some of the changes require us to transform, look within and embrace life and all of its offerings.

1. BALANCING DARKNESS WITH LIGHT. On the autumn equinox, day and night are of equal length. This signals the need to balance light and darkness within us. Far too often, we fear the dark and adore only the light. 2. LETTING GO As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature’s cycles are mirrored in our lives. Autumn is a time for letting go and releasing things that have been a burden. 3. ACKNOWLEDGING IMPERMANENCE Autumn reminds us of the impermanence of everything. We have experienced the budding of life in spring and the flowerings and profusions of summer. Now the leaves fall and bare branches remind us of the fleeting nature of all things.

In this workshop we will explore Ayurveda and learn about the Doshas. How your dosha relates to the season and how the season can bring forth personal growth. We will detox through yoga asana, meditation, pranayama, journaling and self-reflection, and discuss nutrition for the fall season. As yogi’s we acknowledge the Spring and Fall months of a time of transition and preparation for the Summer and Winter months. It is a beautiful time to take stock, acknowledge where and who you are, where you would like to be, and allow yourself to move with grace and ease through the change.

Cost: Member: $50.00 Non-Member:$55.00 plus tax    Contact: Lisa at 519-491-7949 or lisa@innerdawnyoga.com  Space is limited

THE YAMAS AND NIYAMAS-Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice

With Lisa Craig

Sunday, October 19TH 1-4PM

As Yogi’s we are all familiar with two limbs of the Eight Fold Path-Asana (postures) and Pranayama (Breathing), but the two first limbs of the path of yoga are- the Yamas and Niyamas.  The Yamas and Niyamas are attitudes and behaviors that were defined by Patanjali and then notated in the Yoga Sutras going back as far as 2,000 years ago. The Yamas are attitudes we work on cultivating toward others, and the Niyamas are attitudes we cultivate toward ourselves.

 

In this 3 hour workshop we learn what they are and what this means to us on our mats in our practice of postures and breathing.We will also learn a system to practice these daily in order to purify the system preparing for the journey towards Self-realization. If you are looking to explore and deepen your knowledge of the yogic path-this is the workshop for you!

 

This will be the first of Lisa’s Monthly Yoga Workshops that will include the rest of the Eight Fold Path, Yoga Philosophy and History.

 

COST: Members $50.00 PLUS TAX     Non Members $ 55 PLUS TAX

 

WHAT TO BRING? MAT, WATER, LIGHT SNACK IF YOU WISH, COMFORTABLE ATTIRE, BLANKET (IF DESIRED), PEN/NOTEBOOK
