The season of the Earth element is about to begin. It is time to pause, digest the summer and head thoughts towards the autumn. From the state of clarity rises deep intention, a path of your own.
In Chinese medicine, digestion is connected to the earth element. It is not only physical food that needs to be digested, it is also air and impressions that we take in and consume. In the forest, sense impressions are completely different from the impressions of everyday life. Therefore, it is a perfect place for digesting that which you want to let go of and for finding grounded clarity for the new cycle.
In this skogsyoga sessions, we practice yin yoga with the theme of grounding and letting go. The practice is designed for supporting digestion, both physical and mental, and it deepens your connection with the earth element.
We conclude with drumming meditation (in case it is not too humid for drumming).
Skogsyoga draws inspiration from yoga, Chinese medicine, Norse mythology, folklore and archetypes as well as from Forestmind techniques (designed to utilize and intensify the natural healing effects of forests, read more here: http://metsamieli.fi/Forestmind-fi/).

NOTE! If it is raining heavily, I will consider cancelling the event. In the forest everything is already perfect, no matter what the weather is. So, please join only if you are comfortable with dirtying your hands or getting a bit wet. In skogsyoga we practice the attitude that weather is only a matter of equipping. Going beyond your comfort usually deepens the practice.
