$65.00 Rhythms of the Season with Melina Meza: Sunday early afternoon, Bliss of Summer Energy
With the ancient life science of Ayurveda as a framework and seasoned teacher Melina Meza as our guide, join us for a weekend to dive into new yoga moves and refine familiar ones, explore daily rituals, connect with fellow practitioners, and learn what it takes to deepen your practice on and off the mat in these modern times. The ancient yogis inspired us how to align with life’s ebb and flow, particularly its daily and seasonal rhythms. By taking a little extra time each season to adjust your practice, your body will reward you tenfold as it starts to run more efficiently. The payoff will be more energy to do everything you love.
Melina will teach this workshop in-person in Arlington, and will also livestream on Zoom. It will be recorded and available for one month following the live presentation to anyone who registers.
