Sunday March 15 3-5pm: Traditional Chinese Medicine meets Yoga, The Liver Meridian
Led by Sara Zanbeek - Home Studio
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the organ of Spring is the liver. In this 2 hour endeavour we will learn what the liver is responsible for, where the meridian lies, as well as its paired yang meridian the gall bladder. Following a short lecture Sara will lead us through a yang-yin yoga practice focused on purifying and invigorating the wood channel (element of liver/gall bladder) to help prepare the soils for spring seeds to be planted.
Sara is and acupuncturist and yoga teacher. Her focus is healing and transformation through the lend of Hatha Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). She utilizes the framework of TCM to teach practitioners of yoga the potency of asana and breath stemming from the traditional Hatha yoga practices. Her ability to resonate with truth, to hear beyond the spoken word, and her love of nature allows her to be a potent guide for those moving through transformational periods.
As a dancer born and raised in the country, movement and the environment have always been central to how she understands and relates to the world. She fell in love with TCM when she discovered it's roots were embedded in that same dance of nature. Through her studies she has come to see how nature's patterns show up in the body as signals, signs and symptoms. This has given her a unique ability in the way she facilitates yoga for health maintenance, the healing of dis-ease and realizing potential.
Sara lives in Edmonton, her hometown where she teaches and consults. She travels through Asian and North America continuing her studies and teaching workshops, retreats and trainings.
