Traditional Chinese Medicine for Summer Heat: Time to Chillax with Narisara Vanichanan, E-RYT 500
Sunday, July 14 • 3:00–5:30 p.m.
Come celebrate the long summer days by cooling down to release excessive heat and heaviness. In Chinese medicine, during summer we honor the element of fire, restoring the connection between the heart and the mind. Cultivate enthusiasm, wakefulness, and kindness in your relationship to yourself and others. Through postures in Yin Yoga (floor-based postures that encourage opening and release tension), Restorative Yoga, and soothing pranayama (breath work), begin to open sluggish, tight, and constricted areas. Through long, guided relaxation (Yoga Nidra), take the opportunity for healing rest, and help to reduce stress. At the end of the session, you will receive a handout with strategies and tips for managing heat and anger and staying refreshed, calm, and clear. Includes Yoga: All Levels
