What is Seasonal Yoga?
Seasonal Yoga is designed to align the changing energies of nature and the seasons in a practice that improves physical strength and flexibility, giving balance, harmony and an enhanced sense of well-being.
Created by teachers Julie Hanson and Sue Wood in 1995, the practice is an antidote to the stress and anxiety of modern life. We all need to learn to bring balance and harmony into our lives a little bit more and practicing Seasonal Yoga does just that.
