Autumn Yin Intensive: The Element of Metal and the Art of Letting Go


In Chinese medicine, Autumn is viewed as the start of the Yin season as it brings the onset of descending metal chi (energy). We observe the falling of leaves, feel a crispness in the air and sense a pull to turn inward. Metal energy challenges us to deal with change and loss and is associated with the emotion of grief. But metal is also associated with courage, resilience and the ability to truly appreciate the beauty of life in each moment.

During this two hour workshop we will engage in an in-depth, yin yoga practice to stimulate the organs and meridians governed by metal (the lungs & large intestine) and learn more about how this energy affects our body and mind. This will be followed by a guided meditation to help release resistance to changes and loss and allow us to surrender into a deeper state of peace.
