Autumnal Grace: Asana & Pranayama for the Seasonal Transition

Our bodies and minds are a reflection of the world around us, and just as the trees shed their leaves in autumn, it’s time to put away our summer clothes and step fully into the joys of the fall season. Through our yoga practice, we seek to remember that we are a microcosm of the great macrocosm—the more our movements, breath, and thoughts are in sync with the forces of nature that surround us, the more balance we will experience on every level. Using the techniques of asana and pranayama to ground and nurture ourselves, we can find harmony with autumnal beauty, meet its crispness with clarity, and prepare to wind down toward winter.

Settle onto your mat and join Luke Ketterhagen for this nourishing all-levels yoga class to slow down and create steadiness physically, energetically, and mentally. Embrace the seasonal transition with a sense of groundedness, clarity, and balance, and allow yourself to embody the grace and grandeur of fall.
