Fall is a season of transformation, when the body adjusts from the excitement and high energy of the summer, to winter, when we tend to go more inward, and the body tends to require more rest.

With the kids back in school and the holiday season fast approaching, many of us feel that rest is harder to get.  How can we nourish ourselves when there are a million things going on?

Each season is linked with an organ system in the body, and fall’s system is the lungs. That means the lungs, as it adjusts to this new season, is especially vulnerable and can need a little help finding its footing.  You may notice you move a little slower, fall allergies start to soar, or you feel more emotional; grief is the emotion associated with the lungs. Fall is also the perfect time to pay extra attention to how you are supporting and balancing your immune system.  If you tend to get sick once the colder temperatures hit, it is a good idea to plan ahead and strengthen the immune system when the lungs are the most vulnerable.

Yoga has been helping people find balance of mind, body and spirit for centuries and its impact on how we manage life’s transitions can feel downright magical. Give your body the gift of a thoughtful yoga practice crafted to rejuvenate stuck energy, release congestion and open up your being to allow for the powerful healing an acupuncture treatment brings. Ahhhhh…..

In this supportive, relaxing environment, Amy will guide you through a gentle yoga practice inspired by fourth chakra energy with a special focus on heart and lungs. Angela will treat you to a healing acupuncture treatment during savasana (final resting pose). The treatment will support the lungs and immune system while using points to help the body and mind enter a deeper state of relaxation.

Acupuncture is a modality of Chinese Medicine, and is a safe and effective way to address many health issues, using the body’s own energy system, or ‘Qi’.  Needles are one-time use and hair-thin. This workshop is appropriate for those who are experienced with acupuncture as well as those new to this healing modality. Non-insertive options are available (simply let Angela know upon arrival). We promise you will leave feeling more nourished, grounded, and rested when you leave!
