with Marcelyn Cole
Summer Session - Coolness and smoothness. Fill your cup, soften the edges, and find your flow.
You are a force of nature! According to Tantric yoga, humans are deeply interconnected with - not separate from - the natural world. The power of nature exists not only outside of you but within you. When you believe you're separate you suffer, and so does the ecology around you. Adjusting your practice to the season helps you remember the interconnection, and so does Tantra's emphasis on five natural elements. The elements of earth, fire, water, air, and space all have the capacity to nourish as well as cleanse. This workshop series draws on the power of one or two elements each season to help you thrive through that time of year. For those interested, we'll learn how these elements are associated with chakras, doshas, gunas and more. You won't need to know those words, but just enjoy the practices to feel expansive and light (air and space) in the midst of winter heaviness, brilliant (fire) for spring cleansing and transformation, rejuvenated (water) during the Summer heat, and rooted (earth) during blustery autumn. You'll use physical poses, breathing, visualization and life habits to tap into your powerful nature.
