Did you know that your diet and the way you practice yoga and meditation should change with the seasons? As winter approaches, with its cold, hard, dark qualities it is important to adjust your diet to include foods that are hot, soft, unctuous, and light to support balance in our body and mind. We also want to adjust our yoga and meditation practices so that they are hot, soft, and light in nature. In cultivating qualities opposite of the season, balance is fostered, and in the teachings of ayurveda it is said that balance is the key to health and a blissful state of being.
In this two-hour workshop you will learn how to adjust your diet, which foods are good to eat in wintertime and which spices are best to add to your dishes. You will also receive a brief introduction to the practice of meditation and learn what pranayama and meditation techniques are best for winter season. The workshop will close with an experiential asana, pranayama, and meditation practice that incorporates all that was discussed.
