Seasonal Yoga is designed to align the changing energies of nature and the seasons in a practice that improves physical strength and flexibility, giving balance, harmony and an enhanced sense of well-being, providing an antidote to the stress and anxiety of modern life.

The classes focus on particular energy channels and corresponding organs in line with each season; class content changes with the seasons promoting and maintaining good health of your mind and body.

Seasonal yoga combines Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Kung and a modern understanding about body movement, with Traditional Chinese Medicine ideas about the changing nature of the seasons around us, and within.

Within traditional Chinese medicine, a holistic, integrated system of thinking, each season corresponds to an element, a life stage, a colour, a shape and a time of day, as well as to aspects of the individual, such as emotions, activities, and internal organs.

 

The style and focus of classes changes week by week, month by month. This keeps your focus but more importantly promotes and maintains good health of your mind and body.

Winter  – Jan/Feb/early March 

A time to reflect, regenerate, and develop your curiosity and imagination. To achieve a sense of stillness and contemplation, avoid stressful situations and allow life to develop smoothly.

Spring  – March/April/May 

A time of growth with enhanced energy levels. A time to inspire change and refresh your practice and lifestyle. Spring clean your diet, mind and home.

Summer  – June/July/August

Summer is a time of high energy, living life to the full. We feel invigorated and robust. Soak up some energy from the sun to drive you through to late summer.

Late Summer  – Aug/Sept/Oct 

Feel connected to the earth at this time of year. Go on walks in the countryside, get busy in the garden, do something that makes you feel good about yourself.

Autumn – Late Oct/Nov/Dec 

A time to gather energy inwards and prepare for colder months ahead, let go and clear negative thoughts. Cleanse yourself with an open mind.
