Classes this Winter

Winter practice

In Winter, it's all about refilling our energy banks (filling the well), allowing the body to settle, release stress and anxiety and rejuvenate. Winter is a great time of year to recharge and rest, lead a slower, calmer, quieter life. Take time to be in or around water, through (wild) swimming, foot spas, bathing. It is an excellent time to review the year that has been and the year to come, setting goals and plans.

In our practice, we are working with the Bladder and Kidney meridians. These run down the back of the body, (starting from the inner eye, running over the head, at two and four finger widths either side of the spine, down the back of the legs to the outside of the little toes) and up the front of the body, (starting at the base of the big toe pad up the inner legs, a finger width either side of the navel and up to the inner edges of the collar bone). Practice is deeply soothing for the central nervous system, freeing up the front and back of the body gently, using repetition to towards a more yin like experience of deep opening and listening, supported with nourishing yoga nidras.
