Tune into the Summer - Yin yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Katri - Friday 28 June 2019

According to Chinese Medicine the Fire element correlates with Summer and is about our emotions, courage and wisdom. It is also called sometimes called the element of 'heartmind' because the heart is considered closely related to our mental and emotional life at this time. Our hearts expand at this time of year, like a chalice in the centre of our bodies holding the fire of our spirit. (The Tao philosopher Lao Tsu  said that it is the emptiness of the chalice, the cup, that renders it useful. He said that the  emptiness at the centre of our heart is the space where our spirit/consciousness resides. 


This workshop will focus on Yin Yoga poses which stimulate flow of the Qi in the Heart, Small Intestine, Pericardium and Triple Heater and return harmony to out-of-balance and excessive emotions. We will discuss how to keep the Fire element harmonised, and a printed handout will be provided.
