Saturday 12th September
1.00-3.00pm

 

 

There is a cycle to life that’s happening all around you and inside of you. Everything is connected and according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) & Ayurveda medicine revolves around the 5 elements.

Late Summer is the time when we transition from the Yang (hot, bright) time of year to the Yin (cool, dark) time.

The energy of Late Summer is connected to the nurturing element of Earth and the Stomach and Spleen organs. This is the last surge of growth before Autumn’s harvest, so we can utilise the last of summer’s abundant energy to nurture ourselves and cultivate the transformation this season offers.

When Stomach and Spleen Qi (energy) is imbalanced we can experience low energy, digestion issues, a lack of clarity about our life purpose and overthinking.

Emotionally, Earth is full of worry and anxiety when out of balance. When balanced, we can feel more grounded, nourished, relaxed and secure, whatever circumstances come our way.

In this extended class with Natasha you will flow through a slow & grounding sequence to help us connect with the energy of late summer to ease our cares & worries away.

This will lead us in to a quiet yin practice which will focus on poses that target our Stomach and Spleen to help move any stagnant energy.

We will end with a yoga nidra practice to fully relax & nourish your body.

During this class you will also learn more about living a balanced lifestyle including nutritional & self care advice to support your health & wellbeing.

This class is open to all levels. Any questions get in touch.

Join Natasha in this extended class to mark the Autumn Equinox and welcome the transition from summer into the season of Autumn

Afterwards there will be the opportunity to journal & reflect on your intentions as we move into Autumn.
