Workshops – Winter, Spring, Summer, Late summer & Autumn
These workshops will introduce the principles of the ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) system while sharing an understanding on how to best optimize energy levels by wisely using the resources of the body & mind.
We’ll cover the two main theories behind Chinese Medicine; Yin & Yang theory and the five seasons according to TCM, including their associated five elements - water, wood, fire, earth, metal.
Honouring the seasonal time of the year is the essence of TCM.
The 5-workshop series focuses on the teachings and application of TCM in our diet, in yoga practice and in daily living in order to thrive with an in-balance energy flow harmonised with the seasons. Led by Anne and Liisa, each 2-hour session includes a talk about seasonal insights on food therapy & reflections for emotional wellbeing followed by a yoga practice that nourishes & balances the body.

Winter is nature's time of hibernation and retreat.
The purposeful rest phase in winter is necessary to replenish our internal batteries and build up energy reserves. This is a time to go inward and build potency. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) winter is connected with the element of WATER, a valuable substance for vitality & longevity.
During our Winter Wisdom workshop, we’ll learn about the characteristics of this season and explore the element of water as it applies to our body/mind according to TCM. You’ll be taken through insights on food therapy & reflections for emotional wellbeing, helpful in approaching winter-time with more ease. The talk is followed by a nourishing yoga practice that seduces you into a deep stillness and soul connection.
