In Chinese medicine, Autumn is the season when the plant growth slows, the energy within begins to withdraw and descend. In people, we may feel it’s time to slow down, to consider our future, to re-evaluate what is important to us. Autumn is the season that relates to the Lungs and the Lung Network that includes the large intestine and the skin. It’s the time to focus our attention on nourishing the Lungs through exercises, meditation and diet.
In this class you’ll learn and practice:
- Selections from the Eight Brocades, the 12th century system created by General Yeuh Fei;
- Selections from the Crane Frolic, part of the Five Animal Frolics created by physician Hua Tuo in the 2nd century;
- The essential exercise for the Lungs;
- Two meditations that focus on breathing.
- Suggestions for your autumn diet will be offered.
After participating in this class, you’ll be able to adapt what you’ve learned to fit your schedule, whether it’s 10 minutes or an hour. This is a very flexible and effective program.
This class is suitable for beginning and experienced participants of all ages. Please wear clothing conducive to movement and to sitting. A handout with room for notes will be provided.
