This Winter Yin Yoga and Acupuncture workshop is a wonderful opportunity to boost and restore your energy as we move through the coldest part of the year.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, winter is about replenishing the Kidneys and Bladder Meridians. When these are depleted we feel exhausted, stiff, aching and low energy in general. The Kidney Qi is the vital energy we are born with and carry through our life, it a gives us radiance, a strong immune system and vigour.
You will be in the experienced healing hands of Rani Thomas, our resident TCM practitioner. Beginning with a restorative yin practice led by Kel Newstead, Rani will then offer education and acupuncture to help preserve and replenish our Kidney Qi this winter.
More info on acupuncture:
Acupuncture is a well established therapy 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 is part of the Active Bodies Physiotherapy and Health team and is available for one-on-one treatments should you wish to learn more about how this ancient healing craft could help you.
Bookings essential as capacity is limited for this intimate event.
“The practice of yoga works at a physical, mental and emotional level & may be rewarding and challenging. We invite you to take care and participate to a level that you feel most comfortable.”
