The Lung Meridian is the “Receiver of Heavenly Qi”, giving us the ability to receive pure Qi – connection to the spirit and real connection to others. The Large Intestine Meridian is about our ability to let go of what is not needed from our body, mind, spirit and emotions.
During Autumn,nature sheds its leaves and lets go of the rubbish it no longer needs. With those leaves, it produces its own compost, enriching the soil and ensuring the next cycle has the nutrients it needs to grow.
During this 2 hour Yin Zone with Jeannie, you will experience and be introduced to:
* Yin Yoga and the stretching of Fascia to nourish your joints, organs, and restore flexibility.
* Yin and restorative yoga poses to stimulate the heart chakra, and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Lung and Large Intestine meridians
* Physically opening up the chest, shoulder and mid to upper back areas of the body, the torso and hips.
* Pranayama breath and awareness.
* Philosophy and mindfulness related to the Sraddha and the Solar Plexus chakra.
* Yoga Nidra (a guided relaxation)
Jeannie has been teaching a variety of yoga styles for the last 4 years. Jeannie teaches Dynamic Vinyasa, Restorative Yin, Senior chair Yoga, Yoga Nidra and meditation, using music and mantras as sound therapy throughout class.

● Have you experienced deep disappointment or betrayal?
● Do you have unresolved guilt or shame that affects your health and peace of mind?
Most of us have some issues from the past that hold us back and block us from enjoying life fully. Whether it is childhood trauma, a terrible past relationship or another story that is constantly being replayed in your mind, holding onto resentment can completely poison your life and make it impossible for you to experience love and happiness. But it doesn’t have to be like this. You can learn to forgive without any need to excuse what has happened. You can move beyond the past wounds and notice how many things you can be actually grateful for. By forgiving and making gratitude your conscious practice, you can open your heart to welcome joy, spiritual freedom and love into your life again. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to:
● Use the ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness
● Awaken self-compassion and compassion towards others
● Remove old blocks of resentment through meditation and visualisation
● Learn to practice gratitude in a more mindful way
● Use timeline exercises to better deal with stress
