Metal Element



Welcome to your metal element practices!

Metal element practices address the lung and colon meridians in the physical and mental-emotional bodies and focus on toning the chest, shoulders, abdomen and lungs.


This intention and focus in attention in the metal element practices specify and increase the benefits you receive from them, helping you to:


Relieve grief, apathy, insecurity, and loneliness by cultivating your capacity to let life in and let life go — refining your self of Self and soul for a richer experience of inspiration, awareness, acceptance and connection as a vital part of the universe. 

How to Optimize Your Metal Practices

1. It’s optimal to commit to the meditation, yoga practice, and/or EFT session — whichever most resonates with you — as a daily practice. This way you’ll feel more benefit, not just within and directly after the practice (because that is sure to happen) but for long-term benefit that lasts.

If you feel like a different practice one day, than opt for another to suit your energy level and mood — while doing your absolute best to practice every-single-day for a transformative experience. Be mindful if mixing it up costs you on consistent daily practice!

2. Optimize Your Diet: Use dietary guidelines to wean off from consumption patterns that specifically imbalance the metal element. Meanwhile, enjoy foods and herbs that support it.

3. Learn more about the fire element and earth element at the links to ensure that you are balanced in both — the metal element relies on a strong foundation of both fire and earth. If you are imbalanced with fire or earth, couple the metal practices with either or both to ensure optimal benefit.

4. You can also utilize this 90-minute Metal Element Yoga practice that’s supported with fire and earth elements.

See you in your metal-focused practices,


Let’s begin.

Metal Element Meditation

Optional Yin Posture for Meditation: Legs Against the Wall

Viparita Karani, legs up the wall pose, is optional to rest into during your guided earth element meditation. Watch the brief video below for an easy transition into and out of this posture if you’re unfamiliar with this posture.

Modifications for this pose:

If your hamstrings are tight, you can lie with more distance between the wall and your legs. If your back is tight, doing this without a cushion beneath the lower back may feel better. You can also use a cushion under your head or neck if you feel any tension in your neck while lying down.

Whatever your set-up, it should feel really, really good!

Ten minutes of meditation in this posture equals one hour of deep sleep! It also:

  • Detoxifies the blood while reducing varicose veins and swelling in the lower body
  • Reduces stress, fatigue, exhaustion, anxiety, depression, and insomnia
  • Alleviates mild backache, menstrual cramps, and menopause symptoms
  • Provides migraine and headache relief and improves ear and eye ailments

Now choose to lie with your legs against the wall or however is most comfortable for your meditation.
