Roots & River owner/instructor, Machelle Lee, who specializes in Yin Yoga, and acupuncturist Samantha Francis of Five Dances Wellness blend their expertise to offer an afternoon of tending the body and psyche as we transition into the spring season. Informed by the Five-Element perspective, Machelle will lead participants through a full Yin Yoga session stimulating energetic lines within connective tissues that support the Liver and Gall Bladder organs and meridians. Following the Yin Yoga practice, Samantha will provide a meditative acupuncture session in key ear points, balancing the subtle currents within while participants settle into a deep rest.
Throughout this workshop, Samantha and Machelle will present the physical functions of the Liver and Gall Bladder as well as explore the psychological gifts and inner archetypes associated with the element of wood and the role they play through the awakening and growth of the season of spring.
No prior experience with yoga is necessary to benefit from this workshop.
