A 3-hour workshop designed to bring you maximum ease + wellbeing this spring.
Do you suffer from tension headaches on the side of the head?
Are you prone to feelings of frustration, irritation and anger?
Do your hips feel tense and tight? Does your neck feel tight?
Are your eyes and nails not looking and feeling their best?
If you answered YES to any of the above, this workshop is definitely for you!
And here’s why …
According to the Daoist traditions and the 5 Elements Theory, we are born with energy systems that reflect the 5 elements in Nature (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water & Wood). Each of the 5 Elements governs an aspect of our physiology and our psychology. When the element is in balance, the corresponding energy systems are also in balance, and there is a general sense of ease and wellbeing in the body-mind.
The Spring season is closely connected to the Element of Wood, and the energy systems of the Liver and Gall Bladder. As we move closer to the Summer Equinox, these energy systems tend to come out of balance leaving us feeling tighter in the area of the neck and hips, less decisive and more likely to be agitated.
This 3-hour workshop will empower you with the necessary knowledge and tools to harmonise your Wood Element for more ease + wellbeing this Spring.
You’ll learn, connect, practice, reflect and relax during this thoughtfully sequenced workshop designed to leave you feeling well, inspired and recharged.

We’ll put all the newly acquired knowledge into practice with a sequence of Yin poses, myofascial release techniques and tapping practices to balance out the Spring Element, followed by a 30-minute Yoga Nidra relaxation practice that will take you even deeper into a state of ease and wellbeing. There will be handouts, tips and tools for self-care, as well as herbal tea and bliss balls to enjoy.
The talk will be quite brief and very informative. The bulk of the content will be delivered through the experiential practices of tapping, myofascial release, yin yoga postures and guided relaxation.
