Are there ideas you have about who you are or how your life should be that are keeping you in a place of resistance and rejection of reality, not allowing you to be fully present with what is?

I invite you to check it out and use it for your own yoga practice or to guide your students into a deep and enlightening reflection for the benefit of their own mental and emotional wellbeing.
Are you currently going through changes and finding it difficult to navigate them? Are you so identified with ideas about who you are and how things should be that they are affecting your peace and happiness? Are you holding onto something that is no longer there or that it is time to release?
Chinese Medicine uses elements and seasons to explain the nature of our beings. The characteristics of the elements and energies of the seasons help us understand our own mental and emotional tendencies and identify imbalances. The metal element and season of Autumn are associated to the Lungs & Large Intestine meridians. When these meridians and the element are out of balance we can't let go of things or people or ideas and become stuck. This text will inspire your own reflection and will give you ideas to explore to get back to balance. If you are a teacher, you can use this script to guide your students in a Yin Class as it clearly shows the WHAT the theme is, WHY is releavant and HOW you can work on finding balance.
