A Yin/Yang Journey for the Seasonal Yogi!
A series of immersions delivered around the change of each season, designed to help you stop, ground, centre, connect with and feel as an integral part of the ever changing world around you.
These 2hr sessions are perfect for those who would like to explore in more detail both the yin and yang aspects of a balanced Yoga practice, as they relate to the changing seasons.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Spring is the season of the Wood Element and a perfect time to reflect on the importance of both stability (yin) and flexibility (yang) in our quest for harmony of the body, breath & mind.
This workshop will explore specific Yoga practices inspired by the energetic ‘personalities’ of TCM’s Liver (yin) & Gallbladder (yang) meridians (energetic pathways), tracing their journey through the specific areas of the body to which they each relate.
(Re)establishing a connection to your inner world (yin), as a reflection of the world around you (yang), through a seasonally appropriate fusion of āsana (posture), prānāyāma (breath), mudrā (symbolic gesture), and mantra (sound) delivered in both yin and yang styles.
