Nurture & Nourish: A Late Summer Yin & Yoga Nidra Workshop

Nurture & Nourish: A Late Summer Yin & Yoga Nidra Workshop

Saturday 7th September 2019 | 2.00pm to 4.00pm | £25

Join me for the fifth in my series of seasonal workshops.

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.


Late Summer is TCM’s fifth season and is particularly significant as it is when we transition from the Yang (hot, bright) time of year to the Yin (cool, dark) time.


The energy of Late Summer is connected to the nurturing element of Earth and the Stomach and Spleen. This is the last surge of growth before Autumn’s harvest, so this is an especially important time utilise the last of summer’s abundant energy to nurture ourselves and cultivate the transformation this season facilitates.


Part one of this workshop will be a Stomach and Spleen 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.


When Stomach and Spleen Qi is imbalanced we can experience low energy, digestion issues, a lack of clarity about our life purpose and overthinking. Emotionally, Earth is full of worry and anxiety when out of balance. When balanced, we can feel more grounded, nourished, relaxed and secure, whatever circumstances may come our way.


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