Restorative Yoga & 5 Elements Shiatsu Acupressure (in-studio) with Katrin Elia & Terry King, L.M.T.
Sunday, December 11, 5:30 - 7:00pm
After such a long time, Katrin Elia Yoga is happy to offer a treatment event again!!! The studio is well-known for these wonderful unique sessions.
The theme of the event is the change from the hot summer to the cooler fall weather. This time of the year brings lot of challenges for the body’s immunity and well-being. In the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), human’s are an integral part of nature and the continually changing world. TCM as Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine) views the world and everything in it through the five elements. Autumn is seen in TCM as the season of metal, which governs organization, storage, setting limits, protecting boundaries and letting go of unwanted things. The connected organs for this season are: Lungs and large intestines.
Please join us for this 90 minute healing session of Restorative Yoga and hands-on Acupressure.
What to expect?
Katrin will help each student to set up for each long holding restorative yoga pose. Each pose will use yoga props such as yoga blocks, blankets and a bolster to insure you receive the maximum of relaxation in each pose. During each restorative yoga pose, Terry will work on each student lead by her strong intuition. She will work mostly on acupressure points that strengthening the Qi (life force) of the Lungs which will benefit as well the health of the large intestines (partner organ). Beside bringing balance to the whole body (Qi – Life force) and the support of your immune system, it will cleanse these particular organs (such as removing phlegm in the lungs if one has that particular issue). Further acupressure sessions after this healing event are recommended. Pre-registration via email: email@example.com required

WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU START THE ONLINE YOGA SESSION:
Before joining the class YOU need to download the Zoom Meeting App. on your device. It doesn’t need to be an apple device, however it seems that a laptop or computer (bigger screen) is better than a smart phone for the presentation of the class. If the system ask you for Meeting ID and/or Password, please use the information that was emailed to you or click on the link in the invite.
It would be good if you could join the class 5 minutes before the session starts, in case there are questions in regard of the set up, audio, adjustment of your screen, etc. Also please have your practice space prepared before the class. The following yoga props are recommended for yoga online classes at Katrin Elia Yoga: a yoga mat, 2 same size yoga blocks, 1 strap and 2 blankets. For your first class, alternatives are ok. If you don’t have yoga props and you would like to purchase some, please contact the studio via email for further information.
Costs & Payment: All the online group classes are 60 minutes long (often a bit longer). Each class costs $20 per person. If an extra person joins your session, please let me know. Venmo (using the katrin-elia account) is recommended for class payment. Please send the payment before the class.
