The cool and windy energy of autumn encourages us to slow down, turn our focus inward, and replenish our inner resources for the coming winter. Autumn is an important time to recharge, renew and revitalize through our yoga practice. Traditional Chinese medicine associates the fall season with the energy of the lungs. Many of the videos in this month's collection focus on opening and strengthening the chest and upper body. We hope you find a deep sense of nourishment, inner strength, and resilience with this collection of free yoga videos for October.
