Mindful Flow, Yoga Nidra, and Traditional Chinese Medicine: Warmth and Refuge with Narisara Vanichanan, E-RYT 500
Monday, January 20 • 7:00–9:00 p.m.
The legendary Yellow Emperor, considered the founder of traditional Chinese medicine, states in his text The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, “In winter all is hidden. Winter is the season of retirement into depth, because of the cold outside. At this time you must not disturb or disperse the yang (fire, or active energy) so that you can allow the yin reserves to be reestablished within you.” Through gentle, alignment-based vinyasa, Yin Yoga, and a long, guided Yoga Nidra meditation, we’ll open tight, tense areas, reestablish ease, then settle in for a healing rest of the mind and body. A handout will be offered with TCM tips for you to nourish yourself and replenish inner reserves. Includes Yoga: Experienced Beginners and Intermediate/Advanced Students
