Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques & Yin yoga for the Earth element

yoga teacher training bali

Towards the end of Summer, fire energy begins to cool & we move into the Earth elemental energy, this is the season of late summer. In this period the activities of growth & decline are balanced. Earth is the aspect of all the energies in harmony, the Yang energies of Spring & Summer & Yin energies of Autumn & Winter. Late summer reminds us that Mother Earth gives us all that we need, reminding  us that we are one with nature.

Within the body, our earth energy relates to the stomach, spleen & pancreas. If our earth energy is out of balance our digestion can suffer, this will affect our whole system, emotional imbalances can show as worry & anxiety.
