About the workshop
This Winter’s Yin and Acupuncture event is a chance to restore energy, to soak in the warmth and healing as we move through the coldest part of the year. The Kidney and Bladder meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine are the target of this 2 hour restorative practice. You’ll be guided through a sumptuous targeted yin class by Bianca Kalogerakis. Then, the healing hands of Rani Thomas and Ben Waters will apply acupuncture points stimulating the Kidney and Bladder meridians. You’ll be able to rest deeply so you can leave feeling rested, nourished and radiant.

Acupuncture is a well established theory based on principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Fine hair-like needles are tapped into the skin to stimulate body response. The needles are single use, sterile and totally safe. Community Acupuncture means that everyone gets the same few points stimulated, in this case specific to meridians relevant to the change of season. Rani and Ben are integral parts of the Active Bodies Physiotherapy and Health team. They’re available for one-on-one treatments should you wish to learn more about how this ancient healing craft could help you.
The practice of yoga works at a physical, mental and emotional level and may be rewarding and challenging. We invite you to take care and we always recommend that you participate only to a level where you feel safe and comfortable.
