– Discovering three essential oils for balancing the wood element
In this workshop Carina combines the ancient knowledge of the Chinese medicine element wood with the organs liver and gallbladder with Yin Yoga, nutrition, breath techniques and essential oils.
If the wood element is balanced, we are rooted in the past, stand with strength in the present and look with confidence and joy towards our future.
The wood element creates our ability to have a clear overview of our life and to be able to plan, focus and make decisions. On a physical level it gives us strength and flexibility.
Yin Yoga focuses on seated, supine, or prone poses in which we stay longer and work on deeper layers as sinews, ligaments, joints and fascias. This style targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. While staying longer in the asanas (about 3-10 min.) we learn patience, surrender and focus our attention inwardly. Calm and equanimity have room to develop. We start the practice with a breath technique and meditation.
