Embrace the Wisdom of Winter

It can be hard to surrender to the stillness of the Winter months. The cold and dark days can make us feel depleted, depressed, and emotionally stuck. But there is also a healing wisdom to the Winter season.


Winter is a sacred time of rest and rejuvenation on a deep cellular level of our being. This self-paced yoga therapy program guides you into harmony with the Winter season through your yoga practices. It's rooted in the healing system of traditional yoga therapy and Ayurveda to bring you time honoured wisdom. 


You'll receive a series of daily winter practices and rituals (sadhana) for your mornings and evenings that include: yin yoga, hatha yoga, wellness rituals, self-reflections and guided mediations. When you harmonize your practices with the wisdom of the season, you create a foundation of wellbeing in body, mind and soul.


  • EMBRACE a daily practice that aligns you with the wisdom of the Winter months.

  • INTEGRATE the healing system of Ayurveda into your yoga practices and lifestyle.

  • STRENGTHEN your immune system from a traditional yoga therapy perspective.

  • IGNITE your agni - the digestive fire that warms and revitalizes your life force.

  • CULTIVATE ojas - the vital fluids that  restore your tissues and immune system. 

  • HONOUR the healing stillness that lives at the heart of the Winter season.

  • DISCOVER the power animal that guides you through your Winter soul lessons.
