WINTER WELLNESS JOURNEY
nourish the well of your beingLeigh Evans
Jan & Feb 2021
Thurs. 7-8:30pm & Sunday 1/17, 2/21 4-6:30pm (EST)
I invite you to nourish the well of your being this Winter and cultivate your full radiance and vitality. Join me for the months of January and February to establish your home yoga practice, create your sleep sanctuary and and explore Winter meridian yoga practices that will boost your immunity and increase your vitality by nurturing your deepest root energies.
According to Chinese Medicine, Winter is the time to deeply nurture the kidneys which are the root and foundation of the body–the seed of our energy. This deep Winter’s restoration nourishes our kidneys, consolidates our essential energy (qi/prana) and preserves our roots. By nurturing and tonifying the kidneys in Winter, we replenish and nourish the sap of the body to prepare the body to flourish in the Spring to come.
This Winter Wellness journey is offered live through weekly Zoom sessions and a monthly intensive restorative yoga workshop, as well as a facebook group where we will share our process as we deepen in our internal winter practices. All the sessions will be recorded for those who are not able to attend the session.
Winter Meridian Yoga & Yoga Nidra Workshop
Sunday Jan 17, Feb. 21, – 4-6:30pm (EST)
Especially designed for Winter’s rest, these Sunday workshops offer delicious restorative yoga practices to nourish the Water element and our Winter organs and meridians. Winter is the time of hibernation and restoration. The stillness and quietness throughout the natural world are happening inside of us too. It is the time to let go of our constant outward activity and rest. It is a time to meditate and listen to our intuition and inner guidance. Join Leigh and nurture the well of your being by learning ways to strengthen and balance your kidneys, through yoga postures, acupressure points, mudras, pranayama, and meditation.
Developing a home yoga practice
January Thurs. Eves (1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28) 7-8:30pm (EST)
During Covid, we need our yoga practice more than ever! But many of us are just zoomed out and don’t want to look at the screen to do yoga. You may have tried to create your own yoga practice, but perhaps you got overwhelmed or somehow wandered off the mat after one salutation! This January in the Winter Wellness Journey Thursday night sessions, we will help you cultivate your own home yoga practice. Learn tips and ways to overcome your obstacles to practicing at home. Your personal practice is a time to be creatively engaged in opening and listening to the needs of your body, heart, and spirit on a daily basis. Your practice is your own personal oasis. It is a sacred space and sacred time in which you can develop clear sight and pure awareness.
The Art of Sleep and Rest
February Thurs. Eves (2/4, 2/11, 2/18, 2/25) 7-8:30pm (EST)
We are living in anxiety and stress producing times. Are you bleary eyed from another night of tossing and turning? This February in the Winter Wellness Journey, we will introduce you sleep practices to invite deep sleep and rest into your life. Unwind and relax with restorative yoga, meditation, and ayurvedic practices to ease your mind and invite restful sleep. Enjoy nourishing holistic sleep tips, re-align with your natural sleep rhythm, invite tranquility with deep breathing practices, and create your own sleep ritual to help you drift easily off to sleep every night!
All the sessions will be recorded for those who are not able to attend the session.
