Winter is the most Yin of all seasons.

Its energy is dark, slow and inward. We observe this in nature, as the earth is still and quiet, plants and trees lie dormant and animals hibernate to replenish their energy and rest. We too may feel physically stagnant, and gravitate toward retreating, yet our Yin practice can replenish and revitalize not only the body, but our emotional and mental states can help us find harmony in this cold, dry season.

In this training we will learn how to reverse winter stagnation into winter nourishment, stimulate Qi and restore vitality with a practice focusing on Kidney and Urinary Bladder Meridians and the element of Water. It is the season of Listening, it encourages us to go inward and practice Pratyahara- withdrawal of the senses, allowing us to have deeper reflection of ourselves and our path.

In this Training we will focus on making Peace and cultivating harmony within and around us.

Each Module can be taken separately to earn 20 hours of CEU for YA or part of an 80 hour Elective within the 300 hr TT. It is hybrid- in person or on Zoom. Join us.
