The Themes of Winter: Restore - Relax - Replenish
The meridians associated with the water element are the Kidney + Urinary Bladder of the Water Element of the Winter Season.
The practices we'll be working through during this winter season will help to ensure a healthy flow of CHI through these meridians. By
supporting the harmonisation of the water element through stimulating / stretching these pathways we will help to remove any stagnation or blockages to restore a healthy flow of chi.
The water element governs the functions of:
water metabolism - reproduction - emotional maturation - physical development - sexual organ function - longevity and bone strength.
Working in this way with the water element so we can restore our batteries = rest - relax - replenish!
Tracing the K + UB Meridians
I invite you now to take your attention now to the urinary bladder meridian
in your mind tracing a line from the inner corner of the eyes
up and over the forehead
over the back of the head
down the back of the neck
drawing down the back on either side of the spine all the way down the back of the legs to the ankle
then along the outside of the foot to the little toe
Noticing any sensations here?
Now, moving your attention now to the kidney meridian
tracing an imaginary line from the little toe under the sole of the foot to the inner ankle
up the inner leg to the inside of the crease at the back of the knee
up the inside of the thigh up to the pubic bone and
up the front of the stomach to the chest
ending just below the inner side of the collarbones
what do you notice here?
Keeping K + UB Vital + Strong
moving the spine in all directions daily - yoga perfect for this!
practice Yoga Nidra or other relaxation techniques to restore the batteries and coming home to rest
try some Yin postures that take our attention inwards, finding a place of stillness, practice being in the body
I suggest ensuring your lower back is covered and warm - try a Haramaki (kidney/hara warmer)
wearing socks for cold feet
avoiding cold or raw foods & drinks if you feel your water element is out of harmony or out of balance
try to take more cooked nourishing foods and warm drinks
adding warming spices such as chili, garlic, ginger and cinnamon
Balancing our Emotions
Emotion = energy in motion!
Our water element governs the emotion of fear.
When this element is out of balance we can feel fearful - lack trust in others and be prone to procrastination.
When the water balances in harmony we will feel wise, open and philosophical - courageous - have faith & trust
All good qualities to cultivate for our New Year!
What my Students say.........
“I really enjoyed todays Restorative Yoga workshop. Having 3 hours dedicated to this subject was deeply relaxing and such a treat. I came away feeling totally refreshed - a new person and ready to face the world!”
SP attended an afternoon workshop
"I can tell that Linda has a wealth of yoga experience and knowledge. She is not just going through the motions, she puts her heart into the teaching and I appreciate that, it makes a difference".
LS regular attending weekly classes
"The 3 hour session goes surprisingly quickly, giving time for a well rounded yoga practice, without any rush. I also like the seasonal themes these afternoons have, so today was just what I needed on a proper winters day"
HS attending afternoon at Higham Hall
“I have been coming to Linda's classes for years and think she is a fantastic teacher, always something new to learn as she changes the practices every month, so there is a lot of variety. I really get a lot out of it, that's why I come every week, I feel so much better for it"
