Autumn Harvest Workshop: Yoga, Qi Gong, and Meditation with James Foulkes

As we enter Autumn, we harvest the growth of Spring and Summer, and like the trees, bring our energy inward to lighten up and release old "leaves," which we no longer need.

Autumn is the most potent season for intuition and vision and associated with the Metal Element in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In this workshop we are to focus on rejuvenating and invigorating the Organs and Meridians (energy channels) of the Metal Element - the Lungs and Intestines and the transmutation of their negative emotional characteristics.

The Metal energy of Autumn is an expression of new Yin. We will balance the Yin nature of the gentle cleansing asana stretches and breathwork with complementary Yang practices, whilst using meditation, journeying and deep inward listening to open to our intuitive gifts.

Students of all levels welcome. In Silver Spring.

James is passionate about the alternative healing arts. He has been studying personal development for more than 16 years and his practise and teaching combines elements of Yoga Asana, Yoga Therapy, Pranayama, Meditation, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Cranial Sacral Therapy and Shamanics. These diverse practices; although different, have many parallels in their underlying basis of unity, integration and wholeness.

His approach to yoga is based on the work of Vanda Scaravelli, an Italian who studied with J Krishnamurti, BKS Iyengar and TKV Desikachar. The approach is based on awakening the spine through an intelligent practice, which focuses on the natural forces of the breath, gravity and release.
