AUTUMN YOGA SERIES
Welcome to The Centre of Ki Autumn Yoga Series!
This course consists of five yoga classes, between 15 to 40 minutes in length. Each class has a focus on stretches and yoga poses that connect to the energy of the Lung and Large Intestine, the two organs of the Metal element and Autumn in Traditional Oriental Medicine. This means there are lots of arm and chest opening exercises, to activate the Lungs, and squeezes into the belly and back, to activate the Large Intestine. By toning and strengthening these organs, and working the meridian energy, you will become more in tune with the contracting energy of autumn, congestion will be released, breathing will improve and you will be able to fend off colds and flus.
I recommend doing the five classes during the span of a week and then repeating the classes for four weeks. I know this sounds challenging but there will be benefits to doing this. First, as you repeat the classes each week, you will become more familiar with the poses and you may even notice that by the fourth week you are getter stronger, more flexible and will find the poses are slightly easier to do. Secondly, by maintaining a regular daily practise, you will feel the benefits of this flow into other areas of your life.
Some of the poses in these classes are strong, so please take it easy if you find it challenging. Please watch and follow the instructions carefully and if anything is too challenging, make an attempt but always listen to your body. If something doesn't feel right, then back off.
When doing a home yoga practice, make sure you find a comfortable space where you can roll out your mat or towel, have a computer or device that you can prop up nearby so you can hear/watch the classes. By doing yoga at home on a regular basis, you will definitely feel the rewards of your efforts. Enjoy!
Finally, I would love your feedback once you have completed any of the classes. Please use the link at the bottom of the page to answer three quick questions about your experiences. Many thanks!
