Aging and The Internal Organs – A Balancing Act
As we age, we often become overly concerned with our outer body without thinking about our inner body, such as our internal organs. We worry about our skin quality, loss of muscle mass, decreased bone density, loss of flexibility in our joints, unaware that some of these changes can be mitigated by working on our inner body. Ancient healing sciences such as Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine teach us that when you strengthen your internal organs you also strengthen your entire body.
In this workshop, Karin will combine the brilliant work of BKS Iyengar along with basic principles of traditional Chinese medicine and present carefully selected sets of poses that affect our various internal organs. This approach of looking at the asana is useful at any age but especially as we grow older as it can profoundly and directly affect our quality of life to the very end. Working this way allows us to have smoother skin, stronger bones, deep and better sleep, quiet and consistent energy and an awakened and alert mind.
Prior to the workshop, students will be sent visual aids illustrating which sets of yoga asanas are especially beneficial for each set of organ pairs.
“There is a very safe and intriguing way to work with our body as we age. We will still face challenges but the process of finding solutions can be exciting. Age does not affect our ability to stay open to the new. We have to learn to go from the known to the unknown and be available to surprises as they come our way."
