YIN YOGA WORKSHOP

Sunday, June 20th, 2:30-4:30pm with Nicole Cari

The season of Summer is related to the element of Fire. When Fire is out of balance it can create excessive heat, inflammation, and generate fever. It can also manifest as agitation and anger. In our Summer Yin practice we will target the Heart and Small Intestine meridians. This cooling and grounding Yin practice will help bring Fire down and promote balance in both body and mind.
