SEASONAL KICKSTART PROGRAMS
The ancient Chinese believed that human beings should live in harmony with the natural cycles of their environment. We agree.

Below are some programs, working with the principles of the Five Elements, to help you align with the changing seasons. According to the principle, all change, in the universe and in your body, occurs in five distinct stages. Each of these stages is associated with a particular time of year, a specific element in nature, and a pair of organs in the body.

Change links together the seasons of the year, aspects of nature, and your body’s organs and bodily processes. Join us on a Kickstart and find out for yourself.

AUTUMN KICKSTART - ORDER, COMMUNICATION, BOUNDARIES
THERE IS A SLIGHT NIP IN THE AIR, THE DAYS ARE STARTING TO GET SHORTER...Time to start preparing the body for the seasonal change, it's Lung and Large Intestine time, a great opportunity to take in a big deep breath of inspiration, let go of anything that may be 'stuck'. Our foucs is on absorption and elimination, building strength and tone in the belly, waist and arms, whilst opening the lungs to aid breathing and increase vitality and immunity.

WINTER KICKSTART - REST, RESTORE + REVITALISE
Winter is the time for calm reflection and nurturing yourself. This is the time for us to rest and replenish. The kidneys and urinary bladder are associated with Winter. They belong to the element of Water. The Kidney “system” as a whole, is the storage house of our vital essence, vitality or Jing (the basic materials that make up our constitution and the reproductive fluids that create life).As the days grow shorter we begin to store our energy and prepare for building new foundations. Our yoga then takes us deep within ourselves to build and support our structure, calm the nervous system and balance the mind. We specifically focus on strengthening the lower back and aligning the spine, aiding circulation, detoxing and relieving stress in the kidneys, sciatica, headaches, sore ankles, balancing the hormonal system, adrenals, improving memory and energy drive. The yoga in this season builds a solid foundation for stability, self-confidence and calm.

OCT

SUMMER KICKSTART - JOY, PEAK GROWTH + LOVE

DEC
SUMMER KICKSTART - JOY, PEAK GROWTH + LOVE
The Fire Element is associated with the Summer season and with heat. The element is associated with the heart, pericardium, small intestines and related to the tongue. Emotionally, this element is associated with the mind and it's stability. The heart is the "seat" of the mind and therefore, its highest expression is love. Enthusiasm, warmth in human relationships and conscious awareness.

Physically, when the fire element is balanced, the heart properly governs and circulates the blood and insures proper assimilation of the beginning breakdown of food in the small intestines. Emotionally, when the fire element is balanced, sensitivity and expression, true fulfillment and the equilibrium between heart and mind are our greatest rewards.
