This Immersion is rare opportunity to practice with Mimi Kuo- Deemer visiting us from London.
Originally from the United States, Mimi spent 12 years living in Beijing, China, where she co-founded and co-directed Yoga Yard. She now lives in London and teaches classes, workshops and retreats in the Uk and internationally. She holds a Masters in Traditions at of Yoga and Meditation from SOAS, and offers online classes at movementformodernlife.com, and is on the faculty of Triyoga's Yoga teacher training course. When not teaching, Mimi runs the Glow Fund Charitable Trust, an organisation she and her husband co-founded that helps Tibetan children and Chinese orphans receive life-changing orthopedic surgeries.

In the words of Leo Tolstoy, «Spring is the time of projects and plans.» In the spring, we climb out of the cold, winter months and often feel ready to take on life with renewed vigour. If, however, we're unprepared for it, the outburst of energy can sometimes knock us off balance and be a shock — like we just want to crawl back under a warm duvet! This workshop will explore ways to align with the energy of spring using qigong practices focusing on the element of wood, associated in Chinese medicine with spring, growth, resourcefulness, flexibility and vision. It will also incorporate fluid yogic practices that focus on the flexibility and health of our joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons.

In this immersion you'll learn:
What is flexibility? We will take a look at the function and role of the body's tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.
Qigong practices for the liver and the gallbladder — organs that associate in Chinese medicine with rhythm, dreams, visions and plans.
Mindfulness meditation practices that focus on developing skilful means and resources for working with irritation, frustration and anger and converting them into creativity and positive growth.

About this workshop:
Whether you're brand new to yoga or a seasoned teacher, this experiential daylong immersion will broaden your understanding of how seasonal energies based on the Chinese Five Elements can be explored and embodied through yoga, qigong and mindfulness meditation practices. Working with these distinct yet complementary systems of practice will enable practitioners to accrue benefits from each independent methodology as well as understand how the intellectual and physical threads of these traditions can weave together in the compelling ways.

Included in this day:
Experiential anatomy relevant to the themes and focus for spring.
Creative, mindful vinyasa practices that integrate yoga and qigong.
Active, static and meditative qigong practices.
Mindfulness-based meditation practices.
Talks and contemplations.
A vegetarian lunch provided by Yoga Kitchen
