SHIATSU & YOGA - The Fire Element & Heart Meridian (1)
Time & Location
What to expect
We are well into Spring, take a moment to see which things you envisioned at the start of this season are taking shape. In this workshop will be looking at detoxification, keeping your ideas and body in action and flow whilst clearing out the parts you don’t need.
In oriental medicine the wood element and the Gall Bladder meridian are closely linked. The imagery of supple fresh shoots emerging from the old hard wood of last year’s growth, and new seeds germinating as it gets brighter and warmer, illuminate the shift in the wood energy around us at this time of year. This shift of energy also occurs within us and is embodied in the Gall Bladder meridian. If the rising wood energy struggles to move in the body it can cause stiffness and pain in our joints and in the mind feelings of frustration, lack of ambition and serious indecision. If there is flow, you will be able to move forward creatively, with clarity and conviction.
During this 90 minute workshop you will receive a shiatsu treatment integrated with acutonics (sound healing) from Joy Rose and experience yoga with a fantastic yoga practitioner that will activate your Gall Bladder energy bringing energising and detoxifying movement into your body and mind.
