Summer Yin Intensive: The Element of Fire

Summertime and the living is easy… That is, If your fire energy (chi) is strong and balanced!

According to traditional Chinese medicine, the element of fire is dominant during summer when the sun (the ultimate source of fire energy) is at it’s strongest. Strong fire chi manifests within us as love, laughter, vitality and enthusiasm for life and allows us to be warm and generous towards one another. When our fire chi is weak we become bored with life, feel depressed and struggle with social relationships.

During this two hour workshop you will learn how certain yin poses can be used to strengthen and balance your internal fire energy. This practice, along with breath-work and guided meditation, will help you open your heart to more joy and love and reignite your passion and vitality.
