Yin Yoga for autumnFrom 30/10/2016 to 30/10/2016 -Location: La shaleta, Zonaioga, Sabadell
As the nights grow longer, the temperatures drop and the leaves begin to change colour, nature is whispering her preparations for the long rest of winter ahead. It is time to slow down, store away what we need and let go of what is no longer useful to us.
In this Yin Yoga for autumn workshop, we will reflect on what the season honours: the importance of letting go so we are able to keep moving forwards. We can enjoy harvesting the results of previous months, and reflect on what is now essential and what can be left behind.
In the Taoist tradition, and from it, Traditional Chinese Medicine, the autumn season represents the metal element, which in the body is connected to the lung and large intestine organs, responsible for separating what is essential from the waste. When the metal Chi or Qi (energy) is flowing in the body we feel harmonious, spacious and free on a physical, mental and emotional level.
This special Yin Yoga for autumn practice is focussed on the Lung and Large intestine meridians (upper body, arms, shoulders and torso) with a sequence to stimulate and strengthen the flow of chi through these energetic channels, and the assimilation of our external sources of vitality.
When the metal energy is strong we are able to appreciate and courageously face the impermanent nature of every aspect of life, with greater sensitivity without feeling overwhelmed by sadness. We can live more openly with vigour and incorporate every change on our path with fortitude and balance.
The stillness of yin yoga offers us space and a time of tranquility to observe and reconnect to our true essence, with all the contrasts, changes and cycles, savouring each and every one of its stages, symbolised by the metal element, and the alchemy which takes us from its rough and raw state to a much more brilliant and precious one.
In this Yin Yoga for autumn workshop, we will explore the metal element within this quiet, deep, still practice, where we hold the postures for longer (3-5 minutes) to gradually release any tension in the connective tissues and fascia of the body.
