"Zhi" defn: The shen/spirit related to the Kidney system. It is the minister of will, effort and perseverance.

Blending Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with yoga has become commonplace and is growing in popularity. Combining these 2 systems is especially relatable in the season of winter as TCM provides a beautiful model to explain the importance of slowing down and conserving Jing (life essence). However to fully support the Kidneys (Zang organ system related to winter), it is not enough simply to do less. Excessive sedantary activities can lead to stagnation of Qi, creating a frustrated Liver for the coming of spring. Afterall, there is no Yin without Yang - an expert balance of both is required for optimal health.

Join Hannah and Lena for a relaxing and rejuvenating evening of Yin Yoga, cupping and self massage.

A range of complimentary delicious homemade refreshments (including mince pies and mulled wine) will be offered at the end of class.

Cost: £25
Date and Time: Friday 13th December, 7.00 - 9.00 pm
Location: Mulberry House, Edinburgh
