Our first yin and pin will be held as we transition into autumn. In Chinese Medicine, autumn is associated with the metal element. This time of year is about connection, quality, holding on and letting go. It is a time of increasing yin, a time to wind down, get your storehouse ready to see you through the winter.

After being led through a restorative yin practice [by Lauren Porter] participants will be treated to a carefully curated acupuncture treatment [from licensed Acupuncturist Lex Keklak] designed to help ease the transition into the fall season, boosting the immune system and building up the body before winding down for the winter.

The workshop will include dietary and lifestyle recommendations for the change of seasons.

What to expect: A supine supported butterfly pose – a restorative variation – with 2 blocks under each knee and a bolster supporting the entire spine.

This particular variation eases tension off of the hips, and lower back to create a restorative, restful version of supta baddha konasana.

Benefits of this variation include a gentle massaging of the digestive organs as well as creating space in the ribs and lungs to find full breath, this working both major organ systems (lungs and intestine) affiliated with the Fall Season.
