Well, Winter here we come. The season in which we rug up, dig out the scarves and hats and crave hot soups and roast dinners.
In seasonal Yoga, Winter relates to the water element and is a time to focus on the kidney and bladder meridians. These are our filtering organs so the emphasis is on taking time to cleanse and assess our emotions, filtering out any fear, anxiety or anger.
Winter also demands that we bring heat in and Yoga is an ideal way to get the body fired up and moving in a positive, sustainable way. While the movements are slow and strong, when done in deep consciousness, they energise at a core level, bringing breath and heat into muscles, organs and spirit.
So don’t get sluggish and retreat into hibernation, join a yoga class, meet new people and open up your body and mind.
