What is Seasonal Yoga?

Seasonal Yoga was developed to address the imbalance between nature and our modern day lifestyles. We used to rise with the sun and go to bed when it got dark. We ate only seasonal, local food and we were in tune with the changing seasons and cycle of the year, celebrating with seasonal festivals to mark each new phase.

These days we go to bed many hours after sunset, we sit at computers, televisions or devices all night disrupting our circadian rhythm (body clock) and wonder why we can’t get to sleep. We eat processed junk food and mass farmed produce from all over the world and wonder why we’re sick, tired and overweight.

When we eat food from around the world and don’t adjust our lifestyle and exercise routines to the changing seasons, our bodies become confused, and this is when sickness, loss of vitality, and mental & emotional imbalance occurs. We ignore feelings of tiredness and emotional discomfort until our clever bodies force us to retreat awhile by allowing sickness to happen.

For energy, health, longevity and happiness, we must realign with nature and our environment. Seasonal Yoga blends the wisdom of two ancient philosophies; Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine, to create a complete holistic system of movement, dietary advice and lifestyle habits that help us regain our connection and alignment with nature.

We are a part of nature, in fact, we are nature, and we forget that most of the time. When we are out of balance with nature, we feel disconnected, tired, frustrated and sick. However, when we make an effort to come back into alignment, these symptoms disappear, and we can live life from a place of grounded strength, vitality and peace.

Physical practice

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy, there are five seasons – Spring, Summer, Late Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each season is associated with an element (wood, fire, earth, metal, water) and a pair of organs. In order to support the body and the active organs during a particular season, our practice changes and evolves throughout the year. It includes Hatha and Vinyasa Flow styles of yoga, Qigong movements, pranayama and meditation suitable for the particular season we are in.

For example, the summer is the element of fire and the active organs are the heart and small intestine. During summer we have vibrant and spontaneous fire energy that needs to be expressed so our yoga practice becomes stronger, more flowing and ‘yang’. We practice asanas that stretch the meridian lines of the heart and small intestine and we work on opening the heart and sacral chakras with pranayama and meditation techniques.

We adapt our diets so we consume much lighter, water-filled foods that are cooling to the body, and we make use of the extra fire energy by rising earlier in the morning to practice and focusing more on our hobbies and passions. It is a very creative and social time of year and we try to honour that by hanging out with friends and pursuing creative activities and projects.

Each season has its own qualities and strengths, and also recommendations of what not to do at that time of year. By flowing through the year like this and being aware of what our mind, body and soul need to thrive during these very different times, we create a strong base of health, ease, happiness and vitality in our lives.
