Autumn Yoga

Autumn, a period of transition, is a time for self-nourishment and reflection. The season of autumn invites us to explore an inward and introspective energy both on and off our yoga mats. This is a time of year where we slow down, contemplate, and experience gratitude, abundance, and letting go.
