Coming to Our Senses: Appreciating the Gifts of Autumn
October 19, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm£65
From: 10:30 – 16:30
Join Melissa and Rona for this nourishing day of yin yoga, relaxation, partner work, self massage and seasonal tips from the 5-elements theory.
The day will include two yin yoga sessions with the focus on the lungs and the large intestine, as these are the organs associated with Autumn. The first half of the day will focus on grounding, which is important in the transition from Summer to Autumn. In the afternoon we will focus on chest and shoulder opening postures to stimulate the energy lines of the lungs and also some simple breathing exercises. There will be a talk on the energetic qualities associated with the lungs and large intestine and techniques on how to stay in balance during the Autumn.
Students will learn seasonal self-care practises that they can take away and add into their daily routine and share with others. The session will end with a guided seasonal relaxation and visualisation.
The day will also include a hot seasonal lunch, provided by the Yoga Kitchen. The Day Retreat is suitable for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of Yin Yoga and the 5 Element Theory and anyone looking to learn practices to help support their own health. It will also be useful for teachers and students looking to better understand how we can affect the energetic pathways in the body through yin yoga and how to adapt your yoga practice/classes to suit the season.
