Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine are two of the oldest systems used to holistically treat the practitioner, and whose practices are uniquely suited to complement the other.
This union comes together in this seasonal workshop dedicated to Fall with an all levels flow focused on stimulating the lungs and large intestine, followed by an individual acupuncture session in savasana.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Fall is the season of the metal element. Metal is the energy that steers us forward down our path. It represents practicality and organization and it allows us to feel accomplished and satisfied with our work and progress.

When this element is out of balance, we may feel cold, cynical, or overly critical of ourselves, as if building a metal cage to keep others out is the only way to cope. We may also suffer from diseases or weaknesses of the lung and large intestine as these are metal’s associated organs.

The emotion associated with metal is grief. An important theme to embrace this season is to “let go.” The practice of letting go not only helps balance metal’s energy now, but helps cleanse us as we prepare for the most yin time of year, Winter.”

This workshop is limited to 12 participants. Early registration encouraged!
