The blossoms emerge, daylight lengthens and the gentle warmth gives us vitality to move and grow.
In early spring our Okido yoga practice becomes more energetic and dynamic after the quieter inward practices of winter. This workshop will focus on practices to purify and relieve any stagnation from the colder months and to smooth out the Liver Qi.
Spring is the time of the Wood element, represented in the Liver & Gall Bladder channels which have an upwards and outwards movement.
This workshop will include some or all of the following:
- Yoga postures/stretches to connect with the qualities of a tree / wood element
- Meridian exercises
- Self-shiatsu for Liver / Gall Bladder
Let us all blossom and grow with that vibrant spring energy and prepare us for a healthy, joyous and abundant summer.
