yoga asana/pranayama + acupuncture + craniosacral therapy + guided meditation

We will focus on the lung meridian, the large intestine meridian, and the kidney meridian to help you move energy and access greater health this season.  The Qi of Winter is about storing energy and circulating that energy deep in our core so as to protect our health and prepare us for growth and action in the spring.  It is about regeneration and the potential of things to come.

Kidney energy governs the Winter season and its element is water.  When Kidney energy is balanced, we feel energized and secure.  The Lung and Large Intestine meridians represent the Metal element.  This element is about completions, endings, and clearing.  The energy of the Lung and Large Intestine helps us to release what no longer serves us, making room for new inspiration.   When balanced, we are able to release emotions like grief, sadness, and worry and move into a place of kindness and clarity.  The Lung also supports immune and respiratory health, and the large intestine helps us to let go both physically and emotionally.

This workshop is designed to help you move stagnant energy and release it, creating space for  inspiration and restoration.

Yin and Tonic

February 15th 4-6pm

Relax and indulge in a really good way with two blissful hours of your favourite relaxing yin yoga poses, featuring soothing hands-on adjustments and the gentle guidance of Andrea Palichuk, tension-releasing massage by Erin Hobson, and mood-setting live music by Nick Ferrio and David J. Bird. Andrea lives and teaches yoga in Peterborough, Ontario. Her goal is to create a safe, judgement-free zone where people can explore themselves and take what they need from their yoga practice. She has personally experienced the benefit of yoga as a tool for addressing old injuries and dysfunctional patterns of compensation in the body, but also as a way to nourish the mind and spirit. Her classes reflect this: she encourages students to move in ways that honour their range of mobility, improving stability and function, while surrendering to the experience, focusing on mindful awareness of breath and relaxation.
