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. Fire is linked to Summer and the Heart and Small Intestine. In TCM, the Fire element is the spark from which all life originates, and is associated with the emotion of joy, while the Heart, is the ‘supreme monarch’ responsible for maintaining our inner peace and harmony and the home of our spiritual essence.

As Fire’s power is felt most strongly in the Summer, it is the ideal time to prioritise replenishing the energy expended during winter and spring. So, Yin Yoga is a perfect practice to balance the activity the longer days and sunshine encourage.

Part one of this workshop led by Paula Hines will be a Heart and Small Intestine 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.

Energetically, the Heart and Small Intestine govern our ability to be empathetic, to love and be loved, and to maintain harmonious relationships. When imbalanced, we can feel more prone to hyperactivity, acute sadness, intolerance and desperation. When balanced, we can feel more self-awareness, happiness and vitality.

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