Time once again for another Five Elements Self-Care Sunday Class. This one will focus on Spring and the Wood Element.
Spring, the season of Wood in the Chinese Five Elements, is the warming-up phase from extreme Yin-cold to extreme Yang-hot, between the Water of Winter and the Fire of Summer and signifies growth fromseed to blossom. In our bodies, it relates to the liver and gall bladder as well as the tendons, ligaments, and nervous system. So we will find that our liver and gall bladder are much more active during this season. This is the perfect time of year to do a Spring Cleanse, to cleanse your body of all the heavy foods it has processed during the colder winter months, and to support your liver and gall bladder during their major time of activity as you prepare for new growth in body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
This 2-hr class will focus on teaching you how to stay healthy during this season with some simple Chi Nei Tsang Self-Care techniques, chi kung exercises, and meditations to support your Inner Wood Element. Learn about the Wood Element, how to recognize when your Inner Wood is out of balance and what to do to bring it back into balance. If you experience frequent migraines, have difficulty dealing with stress, tend to get "fog brain", find it challenging to make decisions, are a shallow breather, or suffer from insomnia and a disturbed sleep cycle, then this class is for you.
Bring yoga mat, blanket, towel, and anything to make yourself comfortable as some of the Self-Care exercises will be done lying on the carpeted floor.
