Combining Yoga and Acupuncture to create a unique group healing experience…
This 5-Element class is specifically tailored to synchronize the energy within our physical bodies with the energy of spring by using alignment based yoga and specific auricular acupuncture protocols. When yoga and acupuncture are simultaneously utilized in harmony with the rhythms of nature, it creates a unique and powerful way to activate your internal healing energy.
In Chinese medical theory the Liver and Gallbladder are the organs that correspond with Spring. We will be using yoga and qi gong to open and stimulate the Gallbladder and Liver meridians. To finish off the class, there will be a relaxing and revitalizing acupuncture protocol developed by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association.
Spring is the perfect time to detoxify!
Each spring gives us a chance to realign our trajectory on the path of life by creating stability and flexibility necessary for personal growth and evolution. Our energetic systems begin moving upward and outward just as plant life does as it erupts from the Earth. This movement of energy gives us a unique yearly opportunity to eliminate toxins and energetic residues built up from the previous year. If you’re feeling stuck, twisted up, or just need to “dust out the cobwebs” spring is the perfect time of year to help revitalize your Wood energy.
