Zen Yoga for the Summer
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.
This Zen Yoga practice sequence focuses on unblocking and opening the energy systems in the body particularly related to the summer season: the heart and small intestine energy channels (myaku), together with the pericardium and triple heater channels.
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.
Nourish yourself so that you can live more heartfully this summer. Join with us and enjoy the energetic, emotional and health benefits of this work.
