Cooling Yin for Pitta Season
Join Lauren Goldstein for a two hour Yin practice to quell excess Pitta in the body. Summer welcomes Pitta season in the Ayurvedic tradition, and the combination of the elements fire and water are present in the hot, long and humid days. Summer days are often full and busy, and this extra heat and energy extension can manifest in the body and mind as agitation as well as low digestive fire.
Excess Pitta can be balanced with slow-moving, cooling practices like Yin yoga.
This offering will emphasize inward turning shapes in the practice to contain energy and encourage cooling in the body. We will also utilize pranayama techniques to cool the body while resting in long-held poses to release built up tension.
