Yoga and Tea Alchemy – Warmth and Renewal for the New Year


with Iris Padgett and Ken Cannata

Sunday, January 15 from 12:30-4

Keep your inner fire stoked and your soul rested through the remainder of hibernation season and allow your intentions for this year to arise naturally from stillness and wisdom.

This workshop combines three distinct tea tastings with two yoga practices. We’ll start by bringing aliveness to the deep tissue using a unique fermented tea and a warming yoga practice to combat the cold and darkness.

Followed by an aged tea that will bring forth our wisdom, a spacious restorative yoga practice will tune us into our depths and allow our desires for the year to surface. We’ll finish with a special tea for inspiring conviction and action.

A beautiful opportunity for those needing a path for overcoming challenges or needing rejuvenation or rest, for those who struggle with seasonal dips in mood, or for those who simply love a cozy cup of tea! This yoga will be mixed levels and modifications and variations will be provided.

Iris Padgett is a Mental Health Clinician and the Director of Yoga Mendocino. She has taught yoga for 9 years, and her style is a sweet mix of rigor and surrender with a focus on self-reflection and radical acceptance of this moment. She drinks ridiculous quantities of tea to preserve her sanity during the wintertime.

Ken Cannata is a graduate student at Dharma Realm Buddhist University in Ukiah, CA. He graduated from DRBU in 2009 with a B.A. in Chinese Studies. Since then he has spent his time consulting tea companies, importing fine teas and tea wares as well as providing educational experiences to people across the US. You may also recognize him from YoMo’s May Day Celebration.
