Zen Yoga – A Practice for Every Season: Do you want to add a little variety to your home practice or your teaching? Would you like to dive deeper into how the meridians flow with the seasons? Zen Yoga is a practice that incorporates TCM, meridian theory, horary clock, animal sounds, and the five elements with a seasonal protocol with yoga asana. At the heart of the Chinese healing art of QiGong is the idea that nature is balanced and harmonious. This is where we stand aligned between the earth and sky. Man balances heaven and earth, a place of space where we have the potential to heal and be fully alive. This is an opportunity for you to explore ways to help you to replenish your qi, prana, energy, life force within. Each week you will discover the yin and yang organs for the season along with a yoga flow to support and nourish the meridians and a meditation to complete your practice.

Online workshop taught by Sara Chesterfield. Recordings will be available for those who can’t attend live. If local to Chandler, AZ, you may also attend workshops in person (address to be provided upon registration).
