Winter Solstice Restorative
Time & Location
About the Event
Solstice roughly translates to Sun Stands Still. The moment in the cycle of the year when night is longest. A moment of pause, of resting in darkness, before the shift of light once again returning. This time of year can be a source of wisdom, showing us the importance of resting deeply, dreaming, moving tenderly, and honoring our own rhythms. A time for both stillness and celebration.
In this solstice-inspired Restorative practice, we'll begin with some gentle movement to cultivate internal warmth, and then transition into longer-held poses to usher in rest. Each pose will include a short meditation, exploring the gifts of the solstice.
If you haven't practiced Restorative Yoga before, it's a still, nurturing, meditative practice. We use props to support the body, allowing release, unwinding, and gentle, passive stretches. Physical poses are held for 2-15 minutes, allowing space and time to rest, receive, and invite nourishment into all parts of ourselves.
