“I feel so lucky to have discovered your yoga classes. I have searched a long time to find the right class and I have never experienced a class quite like yours. You have a unique way of creating an energising, relaxing and inspiring class each week. The chakra workshop was the most amazing class” Hannah

Seasonal Balance This Springtime – Yin & Acupuncture
14th March (10am-12.30pm) at Saltwater Studios in Worthing
A deeply nourishing workshop with acupuncturist Anne-Marie Fouche and Yoga teacher Louise Windsor integrating a unique blend of yoga, acupuncture and qigong meditation, all thoughtfully selected to enhance the benefical aspects of each other and support the energy of the season.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), spring is the time of creating, cleansing, activity and movement, growth, and renewal, and is the season associated with the wood element – one of the five elements in Taoist philosophy.
After the inward focused stillness of Winter – the most yin time of the year – comes the dynamic expansion of the more yang natured Wood Element seen in the thousands of shoots, buds and leaves in plants that are exploding back into life. Now is the time of year when our own Wood Element also begins to expand.
Just like bare, dormant trees beginning to bud and blossom; we too can harness the power of spring to drop the old and usher in a fresh, beautiful new experience of health, mental clarity and emotional well-being.
It’s a great time to focus on releasing emotions (toxins) that are no longer relevant to us—specifically those rooted in anger, resentment, frustration, and lethargy.

Summer is the most Yang time of the year, the most social and highest energy. The transition between Summer and Autumn is a good time to slow down a little, to reconnect with yourself, to check in with how things are going, to settle after the busy past few months. It can have that back to school feeling and it can help to create some space to get clear about what is going to be best for you in your next season.
This day retreat coincides with the full moon, which is a time for practicing gratitude and to let go of what is no longer serving you. In Chinese medicine, just as in nature Autumn is the time for letting go, this day for yourself will be the opportunity for reflecting on this and connecting to your own inner wisdom to discover what will be most nourishing for you moving forward.
You can expect;
Yin Yoga to nourish the Lung Chi for Autumn
Guided self enquiry/journaling

Feedback from a yin workshop:
“Just to say: this was the slowest, deepest and physically effortless Yoga workshop ever. I felt exquisitely calm all day Sunday – in fact, the sense of quiet seemed to deepen even more. What a miraculous process!” Ruth

How To Centre Yourself
A useful tool in times of stress.
1. Feel your connection to the earth, bring awareness to your feet and sitting bones, if you are seated. Straighten your spine as if pulling energy up from the earth right up to the crown of your head.
2. Breathe long slow deep belly breaths. Make the out breath longer and as you exhale let go.
3. Relax the middle line of your body; between your eye brows, your mouth, tongue, jaw and finally your belly.
