Seasonal yoga will teach you how to live life ‘in your element’ by aligning your lifestyle with nature.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), each season has a pair of organs, one yin (supporting) and one yang (major/active).  The yin organ produces, transforms, stores and regulates fundamental substances such as energy, blood and body fluids; the yang organs actively digest and transmit nutrients.  Each organ has a time of day when it is most active:
