Tune into the Autumn - Yin yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Katri - Friday 2 November 2018

According to TCM the metal element correlates to Autumn; like the astrological sign Libra that comes along with the Autumn Equinox, the power of  Autumn is balance and its virtue is justice. During this time of the year people are more likely to experience asthma, allergies, colds and flu, and to develop stress-related skin issues, bowel disturbances, depression and anxiety.

In a series of five workshops related to the seasonal elements of TCM (Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, FireKatri will help you deepen your understanding of Yin Yoga. Each workshop begins with theory, which is then followed by a long Yin Yoga practice that includes asanas appropriate to the season/element/corresponding organs.
