Self Unwinding in Winter

Seasons in Our Life workshop series

Self-Unwinding and Regeneration: Healing in Winter

recover bluesWinter is a time of hibernation, of dropping deeply into your core. All of nature draws inside to rest and rejuvenate. Even as plants store energy in their core, there is a stillness within – the hidden activity of gestation – which will bring renewal in Spring. Your physical and psychological processes work best in harmony with the energy of each season. Winter energy calls you to rest deeply rather than being over active. Winter calls you to treasure your resources in order to enhance the potency of future action and provide a firm foundation for your well being. 

In this workshop we will dive deeply into unwinding tensions of all kinds, allowing you to rest in the stillness and regeneration of Winter.  Self-Unwinding is a corrective approach for unraveling habitual tension patterns that cause distress, pain and loss of energy. By listening to your body’s wisdom and relaxing into positions of stillness and comfort, you can regain well being, energy, and a stronger connection to your core self. This approach can also be helpful in understanding the meaning of symptoms and other signals from your body.

This class offers an integrated approach for exploring where your life energy, body, mind, spirit and emotions meet. Within a safe and healing space, your Self-Unwinding will be evoked by utilizing medical and spiritual Qigong, wave motion, fascial stretching, yoga, core toning, sensation, breathing, sound, touch, imagery and mindfulness.

This Winter season workshop can bring healing and rejuvenation to your lower back and lower abdomen, kidneys, hormones, bones and brain. These areas are the focus of our exploration along with whatever arises for you.
