For many, the passage into September means a major shift from Summer to the academic year. That passage is marked by changes of season. Autumn is a beautiful time to experience the world as it shifts from one phase to another. Long days and short nights turn to shorter days and longer nights. Summer days may have been filled with recreation, camp, family, and travel. Now schools days are filled with academics, homework, extracurricular activities, busy schedules, and less free time.
With all the changes, some students and families experience anxiety, stress, and difficulty balancing all they need to do. The yoga sequence we are offering will help yoga practitioners of all ages to feel a deeper sense of balance within.
This week, we go over the Turtle Pose. Inspired by the patient turtle, this pose increases mental focus and stretches the arms, back, and legs. This pose looks like a turtle withdrawing into its shell!
