Yin Yang Yoga for Holidays

As we enter into the holiday season all the enjoyment of super yummy food, extra travel and holiday stress can wreak havoc on our digestive systems.

Digestive issues from the stomach pain of overeating, gas, heartburn, acid reflux, and constipation are common with big holiday meals.

You are offering the most friendly, loving and kind thing yourself by taking the time for this Yin Yang Yoga practice right now to settle your digestive system.

This yin yang yoga class begins with a yin yoga sequence to support your stomach and spleen meridians to aid in digestion.

Digestive problems from abdominal pain, bloating, or fluid retention are not uncommon during the holiday season when we are enjoying delicious rich foods, feasts with friends and family and traveling to do all of that.

Meeting ourselves with nurturing care is as you are doing with this practice one of the kindest and most benevolent things we can do for our digestive systems.

The yang portion of this class will combine classic hatha yoga poses to relax your digestive system and aid in your digestion along with qigong inspired yoga to calm and aid your digestion.

The icing on the cake of this Yin Yang Class for digestion is an extended guided Digestive Breathing practice at the end of the class in the place of savasana. The breathing practice is done lying down and is deeply relaxing and nourishing. Enjoy!

Namaste, Melissa
