Five Elements Workshop:
Acupuncture, Yin Yoga and Sound Bath
20:00pm - 22:00pm, Saturday 6th April, East of Eden E17 Book your place here
April marks the transition from the yin-like energy of winter and spring to the yang and more active energy of summer. It is a time to prepare for the expansion, outwardness and excitement of early summer, and the fire element which governs it.
This workshop combines the healing powers of yin yoga, sound therapy and five element acupuncture to prepare the body and mind for the season ahead. You will receive an overview of the Five Elements from a Chinese medicine perspective, and advice about how to prepare for the time of year. You will then be guided through a nourishing yin yoga practice against a backdrop of binaural beats to bring the body into a deeply relaxed and meditative state. This will be followed by an hour long sound journey using a variety of instruments including Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks, rain sticks, ocean drum, buffalo drum, steel tongue drum and voice. During the sound journey you can receive spirit point acupuncture*.

*The spirit point corresponds with the third eye chakra. It is a deeply relaxing point located in between the eyebrows. You can choose to opt out of receiving acupuncture as part of the workshop.
