Coming out of the still, dark, quiet nourishment of winter we emerge ready to move forward in life, planting seeds for the months to come and feeling the power of spring surging through us. A feeling of lightness, brightness, freshness, renewal, growth, and expansion.  We look ahead to the future and make new plans, formulate new ideas, make decisions, determine our direction for the coming year, and are full of expectation and hope.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, wood is aligned with the liver and gall bladder meridians, the element of wood is reflected in this burst of energy that arrives with the spring – when new branches appear on the trees, and new shoots push up through the ground. This is an expansive season that offers change after the stillness, and light after the dark
Sarah will guide you through the emotions & elements and help you to experience balancing the Liver Qi. If you are a yoga practitioner or a yoga teacher you will benefit from this reset as you step out and into Spring!


In this spring energy workshop we will:
  1. Apply Yin postures, breathing, and visualisations within the spring theme
  2. Set intentions for the practice and renewed “state of being”
  3. Explain the 5 Element Theory in relation to sustaining and controlling
  4. Explain the Meridian paths of the Liver and Gall Bladder
  5. Explain the Chinese and Yogic theories of energy
