IGNITE YOUR MIND AND SOOTHE YOUR BODY THIS WINTER
Winter can be both magical and demanding. As nature slows and stills, we reflect this through our bodies and can have a tendency towards sluggishness. The cold and damp can make us turn inwards and feel a sense of disconnection, but the shorter days also offer opportunities for rest, renewal and nourishment. This 21-day course is perfect for:
- All levels
- Warming from the inside out and soothing bodies and minds
- Practicing at any time of day

Morning Practice: Awaken with the Elements
42:32 | Mimi Kuo-Deemer
This morning flow class focuses on a connection to the natural elements. It is an awakening yoga practice with some qigong.

This practice will help us awaken to this connection within ourselves to the elemental world around us. It’s very much like a shorter version of my morning practices, integrating yoga and qigong into mindful movements that help me harmonise my inner body with the outer world. This has a bit of everything – abdominals, hip work, backbends, twists, forward folds and arm balances. Enjoy!
