Ancient Wisdom for Modern Self Care
Restorative Yoga and Acupuncture Workshop
GATHER - HARVEST - STORE
A mini-retreat for the body to come back to harmony as we prepare for the season of yin.
A three part acupuncture-restorative yoga retreat is a requested repeat offering here at Jade, with options of doing just one, two, or all three sessions. These two hour retreats will include a simple qigong routine, 5 to 6 guided restorative yoga postures and conclude with an extended relaxation, complete with acupuncture treatment. As Joseph Campbell said, "The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature." The intention of these retreats is to hold space where participants can explore a deeper connection with themselves, fellow beings, and the earth itself in a fluid and easeful way. Calming the mind but energizing the body.
This is a three part series. Enjoy all three or join us for one!
September 24 - GATHER - This first retreat will assist in gathering energy (qi) as we relish the richness of all the summer has offered. With a focus on energizing restorative yoga postures and acupuncture to assist the body, focusing on protecting and storing life force.
October 22 - HARVEST - The second retreat will harmonize with the season, as the trees lose their leaves and teach us the lesson of letting go we will work to release accumulated stale energy and replace with reserves already within. A restorative yoga practice yielding deep release to allow for healing. Acupuncture will harmonize the channels associated with the bounty of the season.
November 19 - STORE - The third and final retreat will nourish the body and mind as we prepare to enter the long dark cold gestation season with yoga and complementary acupuncture. Practicing a series of 4 to 5 restorative yoga postures that create stillness to activate the relaxation response. Acupuncture that will Raise Clear Yang - to benefit clarity, memory, and better sleep, connecting to higher self.
