Tune into the Winter - Yin yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Katri - Friday 18 January 2019 19.30

According to Chinese Medicine the element water correlates with Winter and is about our courage and will. The power of water is that it gives us the flexibility and fluidity to create future movement. Like a seed buried under the winter soil  contains the potential for life which will be able to sprout spontaneously in the Spring, the Courage and Will conveyed by the water element helps us  push ahead against all obstacles in our path.  It our will, courage and instincts that help determine our life's purpose.


This workshop will focus on Yin Yoga poses which stimulate the flow of the Qi in the Kidneys and Urinary Bladder, and return harmony to out-of-balance emotions like fear. We will discuss how to keep the Water element harmonised, and a printed handout will be provided.
