Yoga + Acupuncture is a 2-hour workshop that includes an introduction to one of the Five Elements of Chinese Medicine through:
a simple and powerful acupuncture treatment
acupressure and food therapies that you can take home and use when you need to call in the healing powers of the element in your daily life
The upcoming workshop will focus on the Metal Element – the element associated with autumn. In the Chinese medicine Five Element system, each element corresponds with a different season, taste, emotion, energy meridian and more. This first session will be nestled in the midst of its associated season, when the air gets crisp and Metal takes center stage. Metal represents a sword that cuts away that which is no longer necessary, leaving a refined essence in its place. Metal also corresponds to the Lung and Large Intestine energy meridians, which, when working properly, help you set energetic boundaries and let go of what is no longer serving you.
Tatum Fjerstad will lead a gentle flow with an emphasis on twists and exhales. During your savasana/extended rest, Kim Christensen L.Ac. and Amy Kuresty L.Ac. will support your energetic and physical immune systems in a short, but powerful needle-assisted nap on your mat
The event will take place in the large studio at Yess Yoga in south Minneapolis and the exchange for this offering is $35 in advance and $40 at the door. No yoga or acupuncture experience is necessary and all levels are welcome. Bring your own mat and water bottle.
