Full Description

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there are Five Elements that are central to nature’s cycles and are reflected in the cycles of our bodies. Wood is linked to Spring and the Liver and Gallbladder. Like Springtime, the Wood element is about awakening, rebirth and renewal, and is linked to our imagination and vision. The Liver is very important in TCM, described as ‘the General of the army’. Energetically the Liver is in charge of the smooth flow of Qi (energy) through the body, which allows us to create and execute change, while the Gallbladder, is associated with our ability to follow our own path without being put off by outside influences.

Part one of this workshop will be a Liver and Gallbladder yin practice to help address Qi stagnation. In this slow practice, each pose typically lasts three to five minutes. This will prepare us for part two of the workshop – an extended yoga nidra practice.

The emotion connected to the Liver is anger, so when Liver/Gallbladder Qi is balanced, we can feel a greater sense of emotional calm, discernment and empathy. We are less weighed down by day-to-day stresses and more proactive in creating positive growth and expansion in our lives.

This workshop is open to all levels, however it is not suitable for pregnant students.
