Full Description

In Chinese Medicine there are Five Elements that are central to nature’s cycles and are reflected in the cycles of our bodies. They are Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth, and each element is connected to a specific season, organ system and emotion.

Metal is linked to Autumn and to the lungs and large intestine – and is all about transformation. Just as Autumn is a time when nature begins to draw its energy inwards to prepare for the colder, darker months ahead, precious metals can be found deep in the earth ready to be discovered and transformed without ever losing their true essence.

Led by Paula Hines, part one of this workshop will be a lung and large intestine yin yoga practice, where physically the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons and fascia – the cling-film-like ‘tissue’ which holds our muscles together). Imbalanced lung and large intestine Qi (energy) can manifest as respiratory problems, sadness, fatigue, low immunity and colds. When lung Qi is balanced we feel present, optimistic and more able to face life’s ups and downs with acceptance and courage.

In this slow practice, we remain in each yin yoga pose for three to five minutes. We will then move into part two of the workshop – a blissful, extended yoga nidra to leave you feeling refreshed, restored and rebalanced.

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