Stop for a moment and breathe. Can you feel the energy of Summer all around you? It is big and bold and strong – it is the energy of the Fire Element.
Fire is a powerful energy that if left unchecked, can be extremely destructive. Something any New South Welshman can tell you as we are watching it ravage our beautiful state.
Fire energy is just as damaging if left unbalanced in the body. For that reason, in Remedial Yoga Therapy look to yoga that releases pent up Fire energy with Fire Element asanas and dynamic postures. We work to get the blood pumping to all parts of the body. The big muscle groups that release heat and build strength whilst improving heart health.
These featured postures shows the Heart (red) and Small Intestine (white) meridians of the Fire Element. This move will help you tame the Fire Energy within you allowing for cool, calm and loving communication (something we all need at festive family gatherings).
