As the days grow longer and the warmth of the sun envelops us, it's time to celebrate the enchanting summer solstice. On June 21 at 10am join Amber, Elevate Yoga & Wellness' co-founder for a morning of self-care. We'll spend the summer solstice nourishing, restoring and relaxing to make space to refill our emotional cups. We will focus on our inner and outer light balancing the energy from the sun to find joy and playfulness and energy from the moon to tap into our intuition and emotions.
The Importance of the Summer Solstice
The summer solstice marks the longest day and the shortest night of the year, representing a powerful shift in the Earth's cycle. Across cultures and civilizations, this astronomical event has been celebrated for centuries, symbolizing renewal, growth, and the abundance of life. It is a time of embracing the sun's life-giving energy and acknowledging the interplay between light and darkness within ourselves.
What to Expect at the Event
This summer solstice event is designed to create a transformative experience that aligns your mind, body, and spirit with the natural rhythms of the season. Here's a glimpse into what you can expect:
Breathwork to Unlock Resistance | We cannot see, hear or touch resistance, but we know it is there because it's something that can be felt. Resistance shows up in many forms; physically, mentally and emotionally. We'll start the class by connecting with our breath in ways to cleanse and prepare for the work ahead.
Set Intentions for the 2nd Half of the Year | The summer solstice is an energetically charged day and the perfect time to set intentions for the 2nd half of the year. We'll take these intentions and turn them into affirmations by the end of the class.
CommUNITY Salute to the Sun | Bringing the sun's energy into our physical practice will be done by collectively, as a group, completing 108 gentle variations of a sun salutation (each person will not be doing 108; the total will be divided up between everyone in attendance). This will be our movement portion of class to release restlessness before we settle into our restorative practice.
Restorative Solar Plexus Practice | After some gentle movement we'll settle down into a soothing restorative yoga practice that will focus on the solar plexus area. We'll rejuvenate the body and mind by moving through a series of supported shapes.
Harmonic Sound Healing | At the end of the practice we'll settle into a final resting shape closing out with an extended savasana and soothing sound healing session.
Tea Circle with Summer Solstice Tea | After the practice, we'll enjoy tea from Inner City Nutrition as we take time for reflection.
As the sun illuminates the world with its radiant energy on June 21, join us to celebrate. This event will be an opportunity to reconnect with and nurture your inner self, embrace the transformative power of the sun's energy and embark on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and community connection. Use this time as a catalyst for growth and a reminder to radiate your light into this world.
