Zen Yoga is the practice of creating the conditions for a radiant life and deep spiritual understanding. It emphasises three things: awareness/mindfulness, correct alignment, and the energy (ki) of the system.
The autumn season is particularly related to the lung and large intestine energy channels (myaku) which we will work with in this practice sequence. As the leaves begin to drop off the trees, we focus on the crucial letting-go aspect of practice so that we become able to move forward in life.
Zen Yoga is based on Zen master Julian Daizan Skinner’s many years of living and studying in Zen temples. It draws on the Buddha teaching of mindfulness of the body, Zen’s emphasis on correct alignment, and the profound links between bodily energy and health found in Japan. Through simple, adaptable movements it teaches you to feel the energy flowing in your system, balance your emotions, and foster physical wellbeing.
Join with us and enjoy the energetic, emotional and health benefits of this practice sequence.
