The theme for this upcoming workshop is ‘Attuning the Body for Autumn.’ In Chinese medicine, the Fall season is associated with the lung organ. We move from the external expansive nature of summer to the internal, contractive nature of autumn. The Lung is responsible for distributing Qi through our blood and meridians to nourish our internal organs and tissues, and nourish the skin.
Join us for an afternoon of Yin yoga led by Becky Yin focusing on Lung and Spleen (our digestion system) meridians. During the practice, our registered acupuncturist Laura will apply acupuncture at specific locations on the body to support the body and mind, benefit the Lung, and enhance immune and digestive systems.
