Myofascial release has taken the “hot” seat in the anatomy world in this recent couple of years. It has been in the past been neglected as not so important, as seen as only a tissue in the body. The fascia is, in fact, one of the most fascinating discoveries and a big integration into what I teach in both my Yin & Yang yoga classes! Let me explain what it is, how it works and most importantly how it’s going to help you release tension and impact your life!
Chinese Medicine is a comprehensive and holistic alternative medicine to healing the internal body and the root of the issue. The ancient Chinese Medicine concern not only the physical body but also the subtle energetic body. The meridians health is an important aspect of the energetic body and hence can affect physical and mental health. To address any imbalances in the meridians, both Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are used.
Life flows when chi flows. When our body gets tense and stressed, chi becomes blocked. So does our mind when it is scattered, chi goes everywhere. The goal is to have clear energy channels and promote healthy chi flow so our body and mind can digest all that is happening around us and at times of challenges in life.
All life is ruled by the dance between Yin and Yang. The duality of these two dynamic forces may seem to be opposite but they cannot exist independently, just like shadow cannot exist without light. Everything is in a constant state of flux, balancing and rebalancing into a state of perfect harmony.
Do you feel your energy is slowing down or easily get depleted?
As we are reaching towards the last month or so of the year, there are moments where we start to feel our energy is not as bright and fresh as the beginning of the year. Our mind is more drawn towards slowing down and party time.

Wouldn’t this take more time and energy than to have the skills to maintain our best health and enjoy more of what life can offer?

Spacious, right? Because S P A C E feels spacious...and we all want space in our body, in our breath, in our mind and ultimately in our life!
Just as the breath changes, every moment changes. There are not two breath that is the same, just as there are not two moments that are the same. It may feel similar but if you listen deeply enough and truly participate in it, it is different.
