YIN YOGA WATER ELEMENT & SEASON OF WINTER
Developing Self Compassion
Yin Yoga Water Element & Season of Winter
Water is the elemental energy associated with Winter, Water is the stillness & cooling energy & mature Yin (Yin within Yin). Winter is a time for rest & rejuvenation, during which energy is conserved. In the human body, water relates to our essential fluids, such as hormones, lymph & marrow.
In nature water is expelled by excessive heat. In our bodies, water is depleted by excessive emotions such as Fear. The way to conserve this energy is to learn when to rest & listen to your own needs.
Within this practice we explore developing self compassion by listening to your body, responding with patience & flowing like water through obstacles.
Offering an embodied inward reflective full practice experience of Yin Yoga.
