For the Liver and Galbladder Meridians
Friday May 29th
Summary: AcuYin Bliss is a 2-hour workshop, which includes 60 min of a yin yoga practice followed by a 50 min restorative auricular (ear) acupuncture treatment received during savasana. Yes, that is right. No, that is not a typo. Fifty minutes of adult nap time.
The spirit of the Liver is responsible for vision, imagination, direction, decision-making and benevolence. Emotional and physical symptoms of an imbalance in these meridians include anger, frustration, impatience, moodiness, difficulty making decisions, indigestion, abdominal bloating, difficulty losing body fat, dizziness, blurred vision, pain along the IT band, headaches and depression.
Yin Yoga is a practice where one holds asanas or poses for anywhere between three to five minutes working into the deep connective tissues of the body increasing mobility and flexibility in the joints. This practice works with the Meridian energy lines of the body by unlocking the fascia. Physically this workshop will focus on opening the shoulders, neck and upper back with the added bonus of hip and hamstring releases.
Ear Acupuncture has a long history of use in China and is a complete medical system in Chinese Medicine. It was mentioned in the most famous of ancient Chinese medical textbooks, “The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine.” In modern times, auricular therapy has been shown to stimulate the release of endorphins, the body's own feel-good chemicals. Your Savasana will include one or two acupuncture needles in each ear. These auricular points help to alleviate stress and anxiety while aiding to balance one’s energy. Please be sure to eat prior to our class. Class size is limited. Past workshops have sold out. Register early to guarantee a spot.
