What does winter solstice mean for yoga?
The Solstice is an opportunity to surrender to the darkness while we begin to open to the light and longer days. In terms of meeting this gradual shift in moving towards the light, winter solstice yoga practices usually include Surya Namaskar A (Sun Salutations) and restorative or hip-opening yoga postures.
This class is offered FREE to anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis at any stage of their journey.
NOTE: This session will be delivered in person at the Pink House. Weather permitting we will be practicing outside. Please dress in layers. If the weather is to cold we will move the program inside. If you have your own mat, please bring otherwise we will supply you with one*.
April S. Davis, RN, MSN, CNE, IP received her yoga training in Charlotte, NC through Chrys Kub with the Charlotte Yoga Club Holistic Therapy Institute and has been teaching as a yoga instructor for 6 years. She started volunteering at the Pink House in September 2014 and has also been teaching at her local YMCA in Fort Mill, SC since that time.
April loves teaching yoga at the Pink House and says that each experience is precious. It allows her to share what yoga therapy is all about with the breast cancer Survivors in her class. She dedicates each session to a particular yoga concept, connecting gently movement with breathwork to ease tension and anxiety and help Survivors use yoga as a tool for self-healing.
