Seasonal Hatha: Autumn!

Seasonal Hatha: Autumn!

INSTRUCTORS:
Holli Gipson
Founder - Lead Teacher

Objective:

  • To approach the element AIR and the Autumn Season through our bodies and breath.
  • To become more aware of your lungs and large intestine organs
  • To become more aware of the vitality available in your breath and how to connect to the breath.
  • By the end of the course, you will have a deeper connection to the element air, to the season of autumn, to your lungs and large intestine, heart chakra and to your practice!

What it includes

There are four classes in this little taster course on Seasonal Hatha for the autumn season. Future Seasonal courses will have 6-9 classes.

In autumn, Holli focuses on the element of Air, which coordinates with the lung and large intestine meridians. These practices will bring awareness into these organs and thereby strengthening them.

Every 5 days there will be a 75-minute video available with detailed instruction. Approximately one hour is dedicated to physical movement, while 10-15 minutes are dedicated to breathing exercises and meditation.

This course is for you…

  • …if you have done yoga and are looking to deepen your practice and interested in how the organs are affected by your practice. After trying several styles of yoga, you may be interested in deepening your tools of postures, breath and meditation affecting specific organs.
  • …if you want to learn more about how your practice can respond to the seasons. Again, if you’ve gone to several styles of yoga, you are now interested in and open to other styles and methods that directly address the seasons. Seasonal Hatha is a stye of yoga that employs the Chakras, Meridians and Ayurveda logic to balance the seasons through postures, breath and meditation.
  • …if you want to strengthen your lungs and large intestine. The specific organs we’ll be addressing this course are the lungs and the large intestine. The lungs are crucial to our energy, to receiving and releasing prana. Where our awareness goes our energy goes. So logic would tell us if we’re more aware of the air moving in and out of our lungs then we would have more energy inside, for ourselves. If our awareness is outside on other things, then that is where our energy goes, outside ourselves. As for the large intestines there are plenty of jokes that will connect wind to our colon! This isn’t a coincidence. 🙂 Air is crucial to the elimination process in our digestive system. In these practices, we will strengthen our connection to the L.I. and therefore our ability to release and eliminate air and/or energy.

Don’t do the course if…

  • …you can not confidently do a gentle or beginners yoga class.
  • While Holli will offer modifications for those that wish to be more gentle with their bodies, this is not a course for beginners. If you have not taken regular yoga classes or have not completed Holli’s beginner’s course please do not take this class as you will most likely not feel supported.
  • …you don’t enjoy creative language and imagery during your yoga classes. Holli draws on figurative language and seasonal theory that is poetic and draws on nature. If these words turn you off then this course is not for you.
  • …you’re not into the details of the effects of yoga. This course will be a workout! But, it will also try to educate on the affects of yoga and particularly seasonal yoga. If you don’t like education in your yoga class and would rather work out then this course is not for you.
  • …you can’t commit and show up. Please read the schedule and duration of the course. This is a time sensitive course that will have an endpoint, and if you do not dedicate and commit the time and energy to the course you may create negative feelings toward yoga and that is the last thing we want!
  • …you’re unsure about online learning. If you don’t know if online learning is for you I suggest you try our youtube channel smaller videos before dedicated to this longer and more extensive course.
