Going Back to the Source: Yoga and Terroir Workshop - San Francisco

(Indeed, I left my heart in San Francisco ;-)

Going Back the Source: Yoga and Terroir
Urban Flow/Forage/Food

Friday, October 2 – Sunday, October 4
Satori Yoga Studio
Amanda Dates/dogayoga

Join Amanda Dates for a three-day Going Back to the Source™: Yoga and Terroir workshop. This autumn workshop will consist of eight hours of seasonal flow, focusing on the poses and pranayama designed to balance the nervous system and invigorate the immune system, preparing you for colder days and the “airiness” of autumn. We will corral the untethered and “flighty” energy by moving through a sequence designed to make us feel more grounded and rooted.

We’ll supplement the indoor asana practice with a two-hour urban edible plant walk and forage, lead by forageSF ( forageSF was recently voted San Francisco Magazine’s Best of the Bay for their development of the CSF – Community Supported Forage. Members receive weekly deliveries of goodies from the wilds of San Francisco such as: sea bean pickles, wild nettles, chanterelles mushrooms, acorn flour, etc. (The plant walk and forage will occur even in the event of inclimate weather.)

To wrap up our weekend, Chef Wong will have scoured the farmer’s market fare and created a seasonal picnic spread, (attempting to use some of our finds from the previous days’ forage) showcasing the greater Bay Area’s finest farmers, ranchers, vintners, and brewers.

The maximum number of students for the workshop is 20 and the minimun is 15.
The registration deadline is September 17.
