Late Winter/ Early Spring Kapha Balancing

Join Tiina Kivinen and Angella Windrem for a one day mini retreat to bring balance and nourishment to your body, mind and spirit. This retreat is part of our Ayurveda and Aromatherapy seasonal series.

According to Ayurveda, the sister science to Yoga, the late winter and early spring season is governed by Kapha, the constitution of Earth and Water. During Kapha season, we benefit from finding inspiration and motivation to practice, using the lighter qualities of fire and air to help balance the heaviness of Kapha.  At this time of year, as we come out of hibernation and start to see signs of Spring, we cultivate balance by adding warmth and vigour to our systems, to awaken in mind, body and spirit. When Kapha is out of balance, (and this can be for anyone, of any constitution, during Kapha season!), we may feel unmotivated, sluggish, and heavy. This mini retreat will draw upon the invigorating and warming qualities of fire and air, through Yoga practice, breathwork and meditation, aromatherapy, food, and self care practices. The day will energize and inspire, bringing forth your own inner life energy.

The day will unfold like this….

10am: Kapha Balancing Yoga Sadhana: Nourishing the body and mind with a gentle/ moderate yoga practice that brings warmth, lightness, and invigorating energy. All levels. Enhanced with Aromatherapy/ plant medicine.

12pm: Nourishing Lunch: We provide a lovely light lunch that is Kapha balancing and vegan.

12:30pm: We will spend the afternoon making beautiful self care packages, made especially for balancing Kapha. We will use quality essential oils and ingredients to craft invigorating and inspiring Sugar Scrubs, as well as Golden Milk Tumeric Tea.

2:30pm: Aromatherapy Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra

We will end by 4pm, after a closing circle.
