Autumn ~ In Traditional Oriental Medicine, autumn is the time of year to nurture the body by focusing on nurturing the lungs and large intestines. This can be done by eating foods which are good for the lungs such as garlic, onions, ginger, and mustard; while limiting dairy products.

The lungs are associated with the emotion of letting go. So this is also a good time of year to let go of those things which don’t serve you. It could be material items as well as mental/emotional.

It’s like peeling an onion. Sometimes it’s easier to let go of the material items that don’t serve us. Some folks start with the refrigerator, pantry, or medicine cabinet. Then eventually work toward letting go of the deeper garbage that needs to be released.

However, let me encourage you to take an inventory of that mental/emotional stuff that feels like a weight on your shoulders and let us work with it this fall.

I’ll offer you opportunities during our opening meditation to explore those feelings, let go of some of these things and replace the heaviness with the lightness of loving-kindness. This is one of the best ways to bring joy into your life.

Yoga Blend is prefect for the yogi who cannot get on the floor. We do exercises sitting in a chair and standing including qigong. The class ends with a 10 minute guided visualization. After class feel free to stay on for a 15 minute pranayama class.

Breathing Space is a separate class after each of the others. We practice different breathing techniques that sooth the nervous system for about 15 minutes.
