... I share this reflection on time, by Ursula K Le Guin. Before we get swept up in the pace of fall, take a moment to reflect on what time means to you, and how you want to spend it - or rather, live it.
"The opposite of spare time is, I guess, occupied time. In my case I still don’t know what spare time is because all my time is occupied. It always has been and it is now. It’s occupied by living."
Summer is a very 'yang' season. Fall brings in the beginnings of 'yin' - the time to reflect and evaluate, to let go of unnecessary distractions and to focus. I wish you all some space for this as we move into Fall.
This weekend take a couple of hours to unwind... calm the restless and anxious energy of fall. Unravel the kinks from your physical body, reset you subtle body, and bring space into your mind.
In the autumn, the Chinese Five Elements system promotes the lung and large intestine meridian lines to ensure that sufficient heat is drawn inward and downward, preventing imbalances that may result in the flu or a cold, constipation, or insomnia . As the weather starts to get colder our body is more susceptible.
Elle will lead you through a series of restorative yoga practices,pranayama and guided meditation as you rest and breathe. Laura ( LMW Registered acupuncturist) will work the meridians and acupressure points in your body. Evaleen ( LMW registered reflexologist) will apply reflexology and compassionate hands as you are guided into breathing and meditation with essential oils to engage your senses so you rest your mind and your body completely. This guided journey will restore you all the way down to your subconscious layers. Open to all levels. To ensure your space, please register prior to the workshop either in studio or online as traditionally, these restorative workshops sell out.
Space is limited! Contact the studio to register.
