Seasonal Newsletter: Autumn
Well friends, autumn has arrived!
The fog is rolling in and the leaves are starting to show their brightest colors before they drop. Life feels heavy right now, for so many reasons. So I ask you, what are you doing to take care of yourself? How are you nurturing your body, mind, and even spirit? According to Chinese Medicine, every season of the year is associated with different systems in the body. Right now our energy is beginning that transition from the bright-hot-yang of summertime into dark-cool-yin. It is starting to move inward. Our focus is becoming introspective.
Autumn is connected with the lungs. It is the time of year to strengthen our breath and boost our immune system in order to lay the groundwork for our health throughout the rest of the year. Also with autumn comes emotional healing surrounding grief. This is the time of year when we can honor ourselves by supporting our bodies in unwinding and letting go of our grief, and releasing trauma we are holding in our bodies that is not serving us. This may be physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. With all of this in mind, beyond my regular weekly movement classes, I have a few workshops coming up to create space where we can really deep dive into some very needed self-care and healing as we enter into the fall season. I look forward to connecting with you soon!
