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.

is the time for us to rest and replenish. The kidneys and urinary

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.

heat. The element is associated with the heart, pericardium,
small intestines and related to the tongue. Emotionally, this

heart is the "seat" of the mind and therefore, its
highest expression is love. Enthusiasm, warmth in human relationships
and conscious awareness.

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.
