Yin Yoga For Winter
Winter is nature's time of hibernation and retreat. The active rest phase in winter is necessary to replenish your internal batteries after the fall harvest. In the Chinese Five Elements system, winter is a time to maintain active chi flow though the kidneys and urinary bladder, the organs that primarily move water through the body. In this Yin practice, Melina will explore asanas that open the kidney meridian channels on the front of your spine, and urinary bladder channels on the back of your spine which feed into your hamstrings. By keeping the water element moving during this cold season you will feel fluid, self-expressed, and emotionally well.
