Autumn Practice

Autumn is in full fall; there is a shift of emphasis from outward achievement to inner reflection and contemplation.

It is the time of year where the energy comes out of nature and things really begin to slow. The earth`s energy is starting to turn in and let go for Winter and so it is time for us to do the same.

If Autumn was a person they would be type to know what they need and be able to discard that which they do not. The metal element infers someone who has high standards and values and cherishes this in both themselves and in others.The energy is gathering inward -Move with every breath ,breathe with every move. be mindful and slower in your approach to Yoga Classes and in every physical practice

Meditate to create clear thinking, Give and receive. Keep moving in life and avoid too much cold food during the Autumn season.
