Autumn’s sky is bright with the fire of leaves just before they dry up and fall to the ground. Our vital qi, brightened by summer’s skies, now begins its movement inward as we ready ourselves for winter. The yang qi has pivoted with the waning light and we now begin to nourish our yin and move inwards.
How can we adjust our lives to fend off the colds and viruses of this season? How can we adjust our daily food and activities to thrive and be in harmony with the seasonal shift? We move indoors, our energy changes. This pivotal season can be met with the wisdom of Chinese medicinal principles to nourish ourselves and to avail ourselves to what this autumnal season brings us.
In this 1-hour online class you will learn:
An overview of the autumn season and its impact on our health.
Recommended foods and ways of cooking for the autumnal season.
Activities to support health and balance .
Common health challenges.
Time for questions.
Each participant will receive a copy of the recorded session + note transcript of the class.
This class can be taken on its own or as part of a seasonal series. (See dates below)
