The Winter Solstice is one of four days (two equinoxes and two solstices) throughout the year that mark the beginning of a new season. This workshop will welcome in the season of Winter. The biggest difference between the equinox and the solstice is that a solstice is the point during the Earth's orbit around the sun at which the sun is at its greatest distance from the equator, while during an equinox, it's at the closest distance from the equator. This is a day where there is the shortest amount of sunshine, and it marks the first day of Winter in this part of the world.
Celebrate the season with Steve and the Heartsong community.
Yin Yoga is an approach to practice that targets the dense connective tissue in our body, and helps to restore and maintain the range of motion in our joints. Floor postures are passively held for longer periods of time with a moderate level of sensation. Yin is a fantastic complement to more dynamic activities such as Ashtanga or other power/Vinyasa yoga practices, which generally target our muscles with dynamic movement. The stillness of Yin practice helps to balance our energy and can invite meditative reflection.
