the log book
Itâ€™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 Yearâ€™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. Werenâ€™t we just talking about Renew, Recharge, Rejuvenate last monthâ€¦? 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 yogiâ€™s and the acupuncturistâ€™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.
