With Yongin Kim and Cheri Moran
Fee: $30 preregistered; $35 drop-in
Spring is when new energy, new life and new dreams blossom as we move out of the colder "yin" months of winter, and the warmer "yang" energy starts expanding and growing. Combining yoga with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this workshop will guide the practitioner to align with the natural cycle and flow of life through a balanced practice of asanas, and qigong movements for the organ systems, also known as "acupuncture without the needles." Spring is associated with the wood element in TCM, and is connected to the organs and meridians of the liver and gall bladder. We will practice yoga asanas that will target the muscles and connective tissues along the liver and gall bladder meridians, and also explore organ cleansing qigong movements, organ massage, and sound therapy using Tibetan singing bowls that will help with the process of detoxification, purification, digestion, and the energy of expansion.
All levels of yoga and qigong are welcome. Reserve a spot with Jan at firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, May 19.

She has also studied and participated in workshops with Matt Hayat, Keith Harrington, Pauline Reid, Master Li Jun Feng, and Bruce Frantzis.
