Okido for Winter
Julie Atkinson will lead us through an Okido practise focusing on the Kidney and Bladder meridians and organs to help improve our circulation, strengthen our hara and support us throughout the Winter months.
In Okido Yoga during the winter months, practice slows down as we turn within and take stock of where we are in our lives. Like the trees which shed their leaves in Autumn, we let go of the things – thoughts, feelings, habits etc- which no longer serve us.
This workshop will include some or all of the following:
- Do-in/meridian massage
- Okido corrective exercises
These practices aim to assist both shiatsu practitioners and their clients during the Winter months.
Julie has more than three decades of yoga practice, study and experience, including teaching in Melbourne, Switzerland and the United States. She began teaching Okido yoga in 1986, completed a Diploma of Yoga teacher training (International Yoga Teachers Association) in 1989 and a Diploma of Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies (Australian Shiatsu College) in 2008. Julie is currently teaching yoga in Melbourne and online.
Julie's yoga style is woven from her studies and practice. She is passionate about the benefits of Okido yoga and working with the seasons, the elements, the time of day and the times we are living in.
