Bodymind Imbalances

  • Tendencies of intolerance, impatience, frustration, irritability, or anger
  • Experience emotional rollercoasters
  • Prone to patterns of comparison, competition, or jealousy
  • Feel tired, uninspired, angry or irritable without drugs, alcohol, caffeine, or sugars
  • Are drawn to addictive thoughts and behaviors
  • Dry or tired eyes and/or blurred, sensitive, or weak vision
  • Temporal headaches, migraines, or tinnitus
  • Tension in muscles and tendons, weak or stiff joints, tired or restless limbs
  • Stiff shoulders and/or neck
  • Painful breathing into side ribs, lower back or pelvic floor
  • PMS or pain in reproductive organs
  • Poor hip flexibility, sciatica, difficulty twisting, or pain in sides or ribs

Relational & Lifestyle Imbalances

  • Express impatience, frustration, anger or irritation through hostility, shouting, or violence
  • Struggle expressing anger or disagreement that can stagnate into resentment or bitterness
  • Attempt to control self or others through manipulation like flattery, criticism, or bossiness
  • Rely on a judgmental mind, labeling reality as good or bad, right or wrong, etc.
  • Arrogance and/or rigid beliefs
  • Lack flexibility in plans and/or struggle to create or adhere to plans
  • Difficulty connecting with pupose, passion, dreams, making decisions and taking action and/or workaholic
    Wood element practices focus on toning the inner thighs, inner and outer hips, neck, shoulders, and the entire outside line of the body.
    This releases toxicity, anger, irritability, impatience, and frustration in your physical, mental, and emotional bodies — aligning your vision and dreams, plans and actions with your soul’s purpose.
    Use the practices as you wish, as often and at whatever time of day you desire. They’ll help move and thus stabilize your energy for easier states of rest and relaxation in your body-mind — and release wood-related tension so you can feel more patient, peaceful, passionate, and empowered.

    Deeply Nourish with Daily Practice

    If you’re feeling particularly imbalanced in ways listed above, it’s optimal to commit to the meditation, yoga practice, and/or EFT session — whichever most resonates with you — as a daily practice.

    This is stabilizing and maximizes the detoxification process necessary to move any stagnancy from the wood element: commitment to creating new patterns and settling into daily rituals that address your body-mind needs. Then you will feel more benefit, not just within and directly after the practice (because that is sure to happen) but for long term benefit that lasts.

    Learn more about the water element and earth element at the links to ensure that you are balanced in both — the wood element relies on a strong foundation of both water and earth. 

    If you are imbalanced with water or earth, couple the wood practices with either or both to ensure optimal benefit.

    Wood Element Yang Yoga utilizes active yoga postures from Hatha Yoga that address the liver and gallbladder meridians and their corresponding connective tissue pathways, organs, and muscle groups. Yang is energizing and strengthening.

    This is a concise 20-minute practice designed for daily use and is recommended for advanced beginner to advanced yoga practitioners:

    • Through spring months
    • When moving through a period of detoxification, lack of passion or purpose, indecision, or general inability to plan or take action
    • Anytime of year if struggling with addiction or moving away from addictive behaviors, chronic anger, irritability, frustration, or resentment, chronic headaches, eye or vision difficulties, PMS or pain in reproductive organs, general muscular tension, tightness/stiffness or pain in hips, shoulders, side body, or neck

          Wood Element Yin Yoga utilizes supported, passive yoga postures from Yin Yoga that address the liver and gallbladder meridians and their corresponding connective tissue pathways, organs, and muscle groups. Yin is restorative and relaxing.

          This is a concise 30-minute practice designed for frequent use and is recommended for complete beginner to advanced yoga practitioners:

          • Through spring months
          • When moving through a period of detoxification, lack of passion or purpose, indecision, or general inability to plan or take action
          • Anytime of year if struggling with addiction or moving away from addictive behaviors, chronic anger, irritability, frustration, or resentment, chronic headaches, eye or vision difficulties, PMS or pain in reproductive organs, general muscular tension, tightness/stiffness or pain in hips, shoulders, side body, or neck

          Emotional Freedom Technique is an evidence-based method that integrates aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy with tapping specific Acupuncture points on the body. EFT improves the resting heart rate, blood pressure, cortisol levels, immune function as well as learning and attention capacities. It is clinically proven to reduce anxiety, PTSD, phobias, and depression. The EFT practice provided here is created to help release anger and resentment by equipping you with heightened communication skills that are built on trust and confidence in your intrinsic compassion.

          The wood element comes from five-element theory that is foundational in Traditional Eastern Medicines of China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam. It is associated with specific meridians and connective tissue pathways that run throughout the physical body and their correlation to the mental-emotional bodies.

          The guided meditation activates the lymphatic and parasympathetic nervous systems and tones the vagus nerve to detoxify and clarify the body and mind and improve digestion. It ends with affirmations related to supporting the wood element. It is optional to do the meditation in a deeply restorative and detoxifying Yin Yoga posture. This is guided in a brief video separate from the meditation.

          If you’re new to yoga, yes.

          While the Yang practice is more appropriate for advanced beginners up, if you’re a complete beginner you can give it a try—it is only 15-minutes of active yoga—and see if you want to stick with it. You will also get stronger as you utilize the other practices in this package. They will prime you for the Yang Yoga!

          The Yin Yoga is for complete beginners up, so yes, please use it!

          Yes. The wood-focused practices can help with fatigue that develops from stagnancy by moving liver qi. If fatigued or exhausted, opt for the Yin Yoga, EFT, meditation, and incorporating dietary and herbal considerations into your lifestyle. As you get stronger (be patient with yourself), the yang practice will become more accessible as well.

          If you’re experienced with yoga, yes.

          The Yin & Yang Yoga practices specifically tone the inner thighs, inner and outer hips, neck, shoulders, and the entire outside line of the body. Neither is made for exercise per say or practicing advanced postures. Their aim is to give you the tools to practice daily or as consistently as possible so you can both deeply strengthen and restore.

          Moving the Wood Element:

          Your Role within the Whole

          Modern world creation means rapid at all cost and competing in a capitalist system in which we compare ourselves to those we deem our competitors.

          We lose touch with the intrinsic creative process of daily life in this capital-driven game, seeing creation solely for the sake of income, or status and prestige that’s derived through comparison… and inequality.

          This path is inherently shallow and requires aggressive force to tread. The result is a loss of genuine creativity, looking like streets lined with stores selling the same products and shelves stocked with 50 kinds of the same thing.

          Yet producers continue expanding their menu of similar options that feed an epidemic of decision fatigue, jealous competition, and anger from trudging a path of inauthentic creation.

          The remedy is first to respect the deep-seeded role of the water element’s quiet restoration for a relaxed nervous system, and the earth element to ground us into our bodies and into the earth, allowing the mind to rest. Within this stability, and within the depths of our unique essence, we experience our soul.

          The liver can then dream her soul’s dream. The gallbladder can plan and take decisive action necessary to manifest that vision, and from the depths of water and stability of earth, we know that the dream comes from our own soul, and that our actions are clear and direct in creation on our soul’s journey.

          So we don’t get caught up in a rat race of stressful comparison that narrows our vision and creates rigidity in our body and mind.

          So this inflexibility doesn’t hold us in patterns of impatience, frustration, and toxic judgment of ourselves and others from following a path that we can sense isn’t our own.

          So we don’t lose ourselves to aggression, manipulation, and arrogant intolerance from this enforced path that attempts to control our true selves.

          So we don’t clench our jaws and fists and get stuck in patterns of chronic anger and even rage because of years and generations of resentment boiling over from the betrayal of our soul’s calling.

          Instead we see clearly. We dream our unique dream. We’re innovative and deeply creative — with our food, bodies, thoughts, movement, “work” and our words — and our actions root from seamless motivation and decisive action that stem from soul-based inspiration.

          We rest into the natural unfolding of time and develop the wisdom of patience. We trust our decisions and the aligned actions we take. We balance ourselves between adaptability, flexibility, and steadfast purpose in manifesting our vision.

          We move with the prolific force that is the wood element: the energy of spring that births forth each life one-of-a-kind.

          And together we create a new world for ourselves, for each other, for our planet.
