Yin & Pins: Wood Element
Acupuncture & Yoga
Join Yoga Medicine® Registered Therapeutic Specialist Allie Geer, and Licensed Acupuncturist Kat Dunbar of Niwot Natural Medicine, for a 2 hour immersion, blending Traditional Chinese Medicine and the practice of Yin Yoga. Inspired by our deep connection to the universe, this workshop is designed to nourish the body from the inside out. The focus of this workshop is the season of spring and the wood element. We will combine longer held yin yoga poses with acupuncture needles to nourish our connective tissue and build Qi, through the integration of the Liver and Gall Bladder meridians.
Be prepared to feel rejuvenated, relaxed, and deeply nourished after this workshop. Due to the unique nature of this workshop, limited space is available.
WOOD ELEMENT: LIVER & GALLBLADDER MERIDIANS
The focus of this workshop is the Wood Element and the Liver & Gallbladder Meridians. The Wood element is what provides us with a sense of renewal, reawakening and rebirth. The Wood is associated with the spring, a time of renewal and new growth. As we see in the spring, those aspects of us that have been dormant over the winter months begin to awaken. Just as nature enters a cycle of renewal, growth and expansion—so does the energy within us.
Wood is about growth and balance. The image in nature is the tree which grows with roots solidly planted in the earth (yin), and trunk and branches reaching upward and outward (yang). Our yin yoga class will be cleansing, and focus on the moving and shifting of stagnant energy, and the clearing out of accumulated debris and tension. This is the season to plant seeds for a future harvest, to look ahead and make new plans, formulate new ideas, make decisions and determine our direction for the coming year.
