Winter is a season for rest in the natural world. Shorter days, longer nights and cooler weather invite us to slow down and to journey inward. Solstice comes during Advent, the Christian tradition's sacred season of waiting for the light of Christ to be born in the world. It's an ideal time to pause amidst the holiday hustle and reconnect with your body and soul.
Yoga is a form of embodied prayer that enables us to deepen the connection between our minds, hearts and bodies. Through simple poses linking movements with breath, we can reduce stress, increase flexibility and strength, and improve respiration, energy and vitality. The gentle yoga offered in this session will be accessible to all levels. If you have specific physical challenges, including limited capacity to get up and down from the floor, please let us know when you register.
The winter solstice marks the shortest day and longest night of the year. It’s an ideal time to release obstacles and stressors that block our capacity to see the light amidst the darkness. And to focus our attention on welcoming the light of Christ more deeply into our holiday activities.
