Chinese Meridian Restorative – Kidney Yin

Nourishing & Folding into Yin

Winter is the Water element, and associated with kidneys, bladder, and adrenal glands.  According to Chinese wisdom, Kidneys are the source of all energy (Ch’i), and store Ch’i for times of stress and change, to heal, prevent illness, and help aging.

Kidneys govern the low back, so be mindful with the snow and cold, and conserve your Kidney Ch’i by treating back injuries quickly as they can persist in winter.  This final part of the year can be filled with a hectic pace of shopping, socialising, travelling, decorating and other high energy consumption, so find time to slow down and get in sync with Natures cycles.

Moving in the transition from Autumn Metal Lung to Winter Water Kidney energy, we look at supported practice to evoke nourishment for the spirit. As we move into the deep cool Yin season, we can take care of ourselves by feeding the inner light of awareness.
