In this yoga and cooking workshop we will spring our health into action! Spring is associated with cleansing, detoxifying, releasing the extra physical and emotional reserves you stored up for the winter months. Based in yoga and macrobiotic philosophies, we will explore how to spring clean your liver and gallbladder – the two organs associated with this time of year. Through specifics poses in the primary series and easy to incorporate food practices, we will learn to nourish these organs both emotionally and physically. Come prepared for very light yoga, self-massage, and a hands on cooking class jam filled with ancient wisdom to feed your soul.
Workshop will include:
- Learning to massage visceral organs; the benefits of massage; where the organs are located, and how they function from a macrobiotic perspective.
- Primary series poses and breathing exercises that correlate to the health of the liver and gallbladder
- Hands on cooking class packed with theory of balance, eating seasonally to nourish your mind, soul, activities and goals.
- Easy to cook recipes for the spring time
