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 the Lungs and Large Intestine – all are 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.

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). In this slow practice, each pose typically lasts for three to five minutes.

This will prepare us for part two of the workshop – an extended yoga nidra (yogic sleep – a form of guided meditation practiced lying down that will bring you to the edge of sleep) of 45-50 minutes. 

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.

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