Hello Dear Yogis and Friends,
I am excited to continue exploring Cultivating the Spirit of Water through February. I will also continue to teach on the same days and times.
NOTE: A change of time for our WALKS AT STONELEIGH. The new time will be 11.30am on Thursdays, beginning Thursday Feb 10th. ( I won’t be there this week, but hope the regular peeps will get together and enjoy the warmer day!)
As we begin to look towards the lighter days ahead, let’s not forget that Winter is a time for introspection and reflection. In Chinese medicine the season of Winter is associated with the Water element. In nature, everything appears still, cold, quiet and lifeless, but appearances are deceptive. Life is hidden underground and is being deeply nourished by water. The snows and rains represent a great cleansing process, allowing everything to be washed clean and bare.
❄️ CULTIVATING THE SPIRIT OF WATER:
When we cultivate the spirit of Water we learn to let go of the struggle and resistance, so we can flow around obstacles in our path. We need to take time to allow the tension to melt from ice to water. Water releases and water yields. In the spirit of Water we can begin to understand who we are in a deeper sense, and begin to flow more easily through life.
Come practice with me as we explore moving between centering and movement; stillness and flow; inward and outward; Yin and Yang. 💛🙏💛
