At this time of year it is not unusual to feel run down worn out, and exhausted. Our schedules are filled to the brim and it is possible that our self-care suffers. In this class we are going to focus on strengthening our physical bodies and strengthening our immune system in preparation for winter.
In the Autumn it can be overwhelming to deal with all the demands placed on us, especially after a relaxing summer. Building strength, both in our physical body, but also internally, will help to support our bodies to have the fortitude and resilience.
Increasing our strength gives a sense of grounding, stability and focus and can ultimately have a deeply calming effect mentally, emotionally and energetically for our bodies.
In the Autumn it is important to strengthen our lungs in preparation for winter and so we will focus on our breathing.
By strengthening our physical body it allows us to be stronger internally as well and ultimately more internally focused and introspective as we move into a quieter and reflective time of year.
