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 Kidneys and Urinary 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 Kidneys and Urinary Bladder as well as explore the psychological gifts and inner archetypes associated with the element of water and the role they play in the rest and replenishing during the season of winter.
No prior experience with yoga is necessary to benefit from this workshop.
