Summer is at last well and truly over. It is still quite mild during the day, but the trees are well into shedding their leaves and our bodies are preparing themselves for the cold of winter. Metal is the element of Autumn. If our Metal energy is low, we may have problems with breathing and with bowels. There are a lot of sore throats and coughs around at the moment, which is a sign of our lungs being vulnerable and sensitive to the sudden changes in temperature.. Emotionally we may have difficulty identifying and maintaining boundaries.
Well, it was so mild before Christmas and then we had all the usual excesses – so now it’s time for winter exercises! Winter is the time to look after our Kidney and Bladder – a time to close down and conserve our energy. There is often fear and despair in this season, and there have been quite a few deaths of celebrities early this year that have made us sad and aware of how precious our lives are. Pamper yourself a little and look forward to the Spring! Try this winter exercise.
I am now offering a set of six weekly exercise classes as an introduction to Shiatsu and showing you how you can easily (and painlessly!) help yourself to keep healthy.
You will learn a few simple stretching exercises that you can do in five minutes every day as an addition to your early morning getting up routine.
Just five minutes every day works wonders! By doing this for the last fourteen years I have become more flexible than I have ever been!
We work on the six sets of energy channels:
Lung & Large Intestine
Stomach & Spleen
Heart and Small Intestine
Bladder & Kidney
Heart Protector & Triple Heater
Liver & Gall Bladder
We look at the function of these organs and how we can support them with simple exercises.
If you would like to take part in a class like this near you, or if there is a group of you interested, let me know.

Ah ha! I have noticed lately that my tummy is getting more toned and flatter. Result! Not really eating any less, but the only thing that I am doing differently is a five-minute set of easy tummy muscle strengthening exercises that I have been doing regularly every morning – it must be that. So good news, everyone! I will post them here for download – watch this space!
