Community classes are pay by donation ($5 - $20 sliding scale suggested). If you're new to our studio, please be sure to introduce yourself to your teacher before the start of class.
In Chinese medicine, the organ systems associated with the winter season - the water element - are the Kidney-Bladder pairs of meridians and organs. The Kidneys are the storehouse of our vital energy, our life essence, and need to remain balanced for all the other organs to function. Sensitive to the cold, it’s important to nourish the kidneys during the winter and build a reserve of prana / chi to be used in times of stress. This class is designed to nourish and enhance the flow of energy along the Kidney-Bladder meridians for an overall sense of vibrancy and vitality in the body. Postures are seated or lying down and be held in stillness for 2-5 minutes.
