winter solstice + transitioning into kapha season

last night’s full circle winter solstice gathering at Eka Yoga, led by Marissa with Naturefy— tapping into nature’s changes with the transition into kapha season. when we align with nature, we see its reflection in mind, body, & spirit. the practices of ayurveda include an awareness of nature’s elemental shifts along with adaptations to create harmony with seasonal changes. the altar pictured above represents earth + water, winter’s predominant elemental expression — though depending where you live, vata elements of air + space may wax & wane as well.

winter embodies a slowing down & drawing inward. the season invites moments of reflection & introspection, but also a gentle stimulation & encouragement of warming energy so as to bring intentions forward as we turn away from darkness & slowly move toward light-filled days.

my end of the year schedule at Eka Yoga:

• thurs 12/22 @ 4:30pm

• mon 12/26 @ 4:30pm

• thurs 12/29 @ 9:30am + 4:30pm

• sat 12/31 @ 4pm

• create illumination from within as you explore your winter landscape •
