As the chilly winter weather starts to transition into Spring and we start to emerge from our individual hibernations, it can be a potent time to shake off the winter stiffness and blues, and reassess our priorities and needs. Spring can be just as powerful a time for a new start as New Years. Like that first breath of fresh air wafting through your home when you open the windows at the beginning of spring, often you don’t realize just how stuffy and dark things have been until you open the window. Yoga gives us the opportunity to open a metaphorical window to ourselves, and let the fresh air in. Though it might not feel like it on chilly, windy, rainy days with snow still on the ground and spring flowers and leaves still hiding out and waiting for the sun, but spring is just around the corner!
If you want to shake off the winter with yoga, tarot, and more, then you might consider some of the exciting workshops and events that will be happening at KYC this spring.
On Saturday, April 13th, from 10:00am to 12:00pm, Kayti Sullivan will be guiding an Introduction to Tarot workshop that will focus on how to ask a question in your tarot readings. Like yoga, tarot can be a way to support introspection and self-knowledge.
There will also be a Yoga Nidra Workshop with Rachel Cassar on Sunday, April 14th from 1:00 to 2:30pm. Yoga Nidra, also known as “yogic sleep” is a relaxing, restorative practice that would be a perfect way to rejuvenate after a long winter.
The Joy Moves Dance class on Tuesday, April 23rd from 8:45 to 9:45am will feature live music from the Landis Twins. Get your energy flowing and connect with your body with this unique offering!
Interested in deepening the foundations of your yoga practice or preparing for new postures? There will be an Asana Workshop with Rachel Cassar on Sunday, May 19th from 1:00 to 3:00pm. If you’ve been looking for ways to explore your yoga practice on a deeper level, this could be the workshop for you!
