Join Emma Peel for a two hour winter Yin yoga with meditation workshop this January - the perfect start to your new year...

Ancient Chinese philosophy believes we should look to nature to understand ourselves on a deeper level, embracing the ebb and flow of seasonal changes and energies. In Taoism, these stages of transformation are known as the ‘five movements', intrinsically linked with the elements water/winter, wood/spring, fire/summer, earth/late summer and metal/autumn. Each element is associated with not only the season, but with particular organs, colours, flavours, a specific time of day and how this energy may manifest itself in the way we respond physically and emotionally.

Through a series of five workshops, Emma will explore these phases, observing the natural world and helping to transition harmoniously from one season to the next. This first winter workshop will deepen our understanding of the element water and the organs of kidneys and urinary bladder. We will explore ways to balance the body and mind in this special two hour yin with meditation practice.
