Feeling lethargic and low in energy even though Spring is here? Join me live on Friday 9th April and recharge.
Spring energy is an explosive energy, full of creativity and aspirations for new ideas and plans. It is the energy that brings us into action. In Chinese Medicine this energy belongs to the element Wood. But we can feel the opposite way – tired, no energy, spiritless – when this energy is out of balance.
Even though we had to take it more easy and slow down our pace due to covid, this is not really the case for many of us. Worry, fear of what is to come and trying to survive this time (financially, emotionally and physically), has been, and still is a constant part of our lives. This creates tensions on all levels and therefore it can bring tiredness or lethargy.
When we have rested and recharged, the explosive, active and creative energy of wood is in balance and flourishes without any limiting manifestations like lethargy or tiredness. Form most of us (me included), it is difficult to truly listen what we really need in every moment of the day. We think (mind) we need to do this or that and don’t give ourselves the space and time throughout the day to feel what we really need to do (listening to our inner wisdom and opening up to what we feel). We don’t take enough rest to recharge (water energy: that not only needs to be recharged when it is winter time, this energy is present every day as well) when it is needed and act on that by stopping.
STOP – FEEL – LISTEN
So that is what we are going to do in this class: stop – feel – listen to what you need. Starting with sitting or lying in silence observing – feeling. Then I will add breath work or not :), use poses that help you release and connect inspired by the moment and what you have told me where the attention has to go. Guided by the moment we will find together what has to come up/out or what is needed. Have all the props that are indicated always nearby:
- a mat
- two socks
- 4 tennis balls
- a belt
- a blanket
- two blocks
- a bolster or pillow ready before the class.
If you have a free wall nearby that’s always good in case we need one.
