Yoga & Our Essential Connection to Nature

In this day-long workshop, we’ll move, breathe, meditate, and reflect. The theme for all aspects of our practice will be our essential connection to nature. The wholistic system of Yoga and Ayurveda understand that nature provides the blueprint for harmony within the self, with others, and with the larger world. The morning practice will include a yoga session, and a lecture/discussion on how Ayurveda uses nature as a blueprint for health. We’ll break for lunch and then reconvene at the Arboretum for an afternoon of experiential practice in nature. In the event of bad weather, the afternoon session will also be at the studio.
