Winter Yoga Sequence

Winter is a time of deep stillness and inner reflection.  We can use winter’s introspective energy to gain clarity and insight for the spring cycle of growth and expansion. Willpower and determination is required to look deep into the darkness of this season to face our deepest fears, our hidden realms, and our unconscious minds. In Traditional Chinese Medicine winter is the time when the water element is dominant and the energy in the kidneys and bladder channels becomes the strongest.  If the energy of the kidneys are weak than excess fear may arise or feeling of depression may occur, but if the kidneys are strong than we can access abundant willpower, courage and determination to survive and flourish in this season of darkness.  This 41-step pose sequence will tonify and activate the energy of the kidneys to create the strength, wisdom and courage to do the inner work that winter presents.
