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.
In the Zen system, the liver and gall bladder energy channels (myaku) are particularly associated with the spring season. This wood-element practice sequence highlights the qualities of growth, expansion and creativity.
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 in this practice to help you deal with anger and find your own sense of growth, expansion and creativity this spring time.
