YIN YOGA and FARM TO TABLE DINNER

In celebration of changing seasons, join me at Root to Rise Gardens in Wilsall, MT on September 22, 2019. Indulge in a long Yin Yoga practice followed by an artfully prepared farm-to-table dinner.

Yin Yoga combines ancient wisdom from China and the classic Hatha yoga postures from India. The multiple tiers of this practice have a profound effect physically, emotionally and energetically. During a yin practice, you will hold postures with minimal muscular effort for several minutes. The key components of yin is to utilize time and gravity to soften the physical body releasing facia (connective tissue encasing muscles), leading to a deeper range of flexibility. Yin yoga’s passive and rejuvenating nature will leave you feeling refreshed and reawakened with a greater sense of buoyancy and mental clarity.

Fall Equinox is a powerful time of year to honor the seasonal harvest. This could mean a literal harvest of your garden, or metaphorical harvest from your efforts and intentions during the year so far. Gather and reflect on the abundance you’ve cultivated, reflect on the changes you’ve made in any sense, where you stood this time last year, or three years ago. The equinox serves as a point in the year to pause and allow for stillness.

Dinner will be prepared by Leslie Witter with seasonal produce from Root to Rise gardens. An abundant fall harvest meal with fresh greens, root vegetables, home-grown herbs followed by desert with Flathead cherries.
