Join Megan in an exploration of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s (TCM) Five Element Theory and learn more about the five Shen – or spirits – associated with the body’s Yin organs (heart, kidney, spleen, liver and lungs).
Fire, Earth, Metal, Water & Wood are understood to be the Five Elements of TCM and each element is awarded a number of characteristics. Together, we’ll discover their separate natures, movements and traits, and how they affect our emotions and interactions in the world, through a series of long-held yin yoga poses and discussion.
In this two-hour workshop we will:
- Start by establishing a sense of harmony in body and mind with a slow-movingQi Gong session
- Move through a juicy Yin Yoga practice that helps balance the energy (or Qi flow) in the five meridians
- Conclude with a mindful, guided Yoga Nidra meditation.
Experience the bliss of Yoga Nidra, commonly referred to as yogic sleep, which is an immensely powerful meditation technique and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. The best part is, you get to lie down for the whole thing! You will leave feeling deeply rested and balanced in both body & mind.
Bookings essential, spaces are limited. Open to all levels – everyone welcome.
