Autumn is associated with physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation and is a time for letting go and releasing the things that are not serving you. In Traditional Chinese Medicine autumn is the time when the metal element is dominant and the energy in the lung and the large intestine channels become the strongest. Activating these energy channels through upper back bends and arm/shoulder opening poses encourages letting go on the physical and mental/emotional levels. Autumn is also a time when nature starts to pull its energy inwards and this 36-step pose sequence activates the energy of groundedness and inner awareness of this season.
