Spring Expansion Workshop: Yoga, Qi Gong and Meditation with James Foulkes

As the days become warmer and brighter, nature rouses from her winter slumber and looks ahead to the new growth of Spring. This is the season to plant seeds for a future harvest and determine our direction and action for the coming expansive months. Focused intent enhances our ability to envision possibilities and weave our dreams.

Spring is the most potent season for cleansing and detoxification and is associated with the Wood Element in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In this workshop we will focus on rejuvenating and invigorating the Organs and Meridians of the Wood Element—the Liver and Gallbladder. Thus we will transform their negative emotional characteristics, moving from Anger and Frustration to Acceptance and Kindness.

The Wood energy of Spring is an expression of life and growth at its strongest. To balance the Yin nature of the gentle cleansing stretches and breathwork, we will explore a variety of dynamic sequences—expansive and opening movements with a vigorous and stimulating approach; embodying a surge of rising energy like the dandelion whose growing edge can burst through concrete if it must.

These seasonal workshops offer an opportunity to harmonise your body/mind with the cyclic rhythm of the seasons. Everyone welcome. In Silver Spring.
