the log book
It’s extremely easy at this point in February (are you still feeling the wonder in Winter Wonderland..?) to find yourself defeated and deflated by inertia. The New Year’s resolutions which felt so possible and charged with energy a mere month earlier, now hang around our heads as grey and unmovable as the gloomy moody sky. Weren’t we just talking about Renew, Recharge, Rejuvenate last month…? Now we feel those words hanging heavy in the air, our yoga mat rolled up in the corner, our house a-clutter and our mind churning out the same old, same old, self-critique.
There are striking similarities between the yogi’s and the acupuncturist’s take on energy.. Call it by a different name (while you might hear your yoga teacher refer to energy as life force or prana, your acupuncturist will refer to it as Qi), the intention is the same: to create a free unhindered flow of energy.
We're super excited about our monthly Community Acupuncture collaboration with Owen McPeake, a practitioner from Flat Rock Health in Manayunk & the Vincera Institute. Every second Wednesday starting November 13th, stay after the flow class or drop-in after, when we'll get comfortable in a supported savasana, turn the lights down & the heat up and invite acupuncture to rejuvenate, relax and recharge the body's energy. In Chinese thinking the concept of energy reserves is easily understood like a bank account.
