Restorative Yoga & Acupuncture Workshop

With Linda Bender, Yoga Instructor
& Kelly Tobin, Licensed Acupuncturist
@New Morning Market, Woodbury, CT
April 7, 2018, 1:30pm – 4:00
$55.00 per person, Limited to 15 students

Let’s Move Some Qi !!
While winter is a time to conserve and preserve energy, spring is a time of new beginnings, growth and renewal of body and spirit. In Chinese medicine and philosophy spring corresponds to the wood element: the liver and gallbladder are its corresponding organs. It is the liver’s responsibility to move qi (energy) throughout the body. When qi moves freely throughout the body, physical and mental health thrives. Seasonal acupuncture treatments serve to tonify the organ systems and are recommended for optimum health.

Restorative Yoga is a gentle and nurturing yoga modality that facilitates deep relaxation and self-healing. Bolsters, props, blankets & eye pillows are used to guide the students into passive poses that are held for several minutes, opening up the body's energy meridians to release blockages and stagnation accumulated from immobility & long held tensions from stress.

Linda and Kelly will work together in this unique workshop giving you the ultimate experience of healing and rejuvenation! You will begin with a few gentle grounding stretches, then guided into restorative poses using blankets & props. Once completely comfortable, acupuncture needles will be inserted into points corresponding to the liver and gallbladder while guided meditations bring you into a blissful state of relaxation and balance.

*Please wear comfortable clothing giving easy access to the knees, lower legs and ankles.
*Please bring a yoga mat and a pillow or two.

*Linda Bender is a Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher with Certifications in Restorative Yoga & is also a 7th generation Usui Reiki Master

Quick Tips to Stay Healthy this Fall

By Dr. Jing Chen, DAOM, L.Ac., Dipl.O.M, FABORM

Stay Organized and "Let Go"

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), autumn is associated with the Metal element and the Lung organ. Metal corresponds to order, organization and setting boundaries. Fall is a good time to finish up spring and summer projects and begin to get organized for the coming winter months. Lungs support the energy of "letting go," so it’s important to let go of unneeded items that are cluttering the home and the mind, in order make room for new ones.

Stay Active

Even though the days are getting shorter, don’t let that be an excuse to stop exercising and moving your body. Take advantage of the cooler weather to take brisk walks or hikes. Nourish the lungs’ energy by breathing deeply, expanding the chest and getting fresh air. Try to start your day by being active, especially if you want to spend the evening cozying up indoors with a warm beverage.

Boost your Immune System

In the cooler days of autumn, you may be more vulnerable to colds and respiratory allergies. In TCM, the lungs govern the protective Qi, which defends the body from viruses and other external pathogens. Support the lungs and immune system with Qi Gong, herbs, acupuncture and foods like onion, radish and pear. Eat more warming foods such as soups, and less cold foods, such as salads.

Wear a Scarf

As the days get more cold and windy, protect yourself by wearing a scarf. In TCM, the wind is said to be the cause of 100 diseases, and an exposed neck is a vulnerable area where the wind can “attack” the body.

Restorative Yoga & Acupuncture Workshop
With Linda Bender, Yoga Instructor
& Kelly Tobin, Licensed Acupuncturist
@The Litchfield Athletic Club

$55 per person, Limited to 12 participants
Let’s Move Some Chi !!
Fall is the time to reap the rewards of the summer bounty and store energy that will sustain us for the winter ahead. The Fall is a pivoting point when the yang (active) phase turns into the yin (passive) phase. The wind begins to stir and the weather becomes tumultuous and so does the emotional climate. The season is associated with grief and sadness. Let go of negative emotions and remain calm for a peaceful transition into winter.
The metal element is associated with Fall and it governs the mind, organization, order and stability. It is time to reflect, focusing inward with work, family and home. Its corresponding organ system is the lung, large intestine and includes the skin. Imbalances associated with these organs are respiratory (asthma, shortness of breath), immunity (frequent colds, sinus infections), digestive (constipation) or skin related. The body is more susceptible to the elements of wind and cold, expressing themselves as dryness: coughing, dry, nose, sore throat, dry skin dry hair and scalp, cracked lips, dry mouth, dry bowel movements. Protect yourself by nourishing the yin; drink more warm liquids, eat warmer foods such as soups and stews. Incorporate yellow, orange and red foods into your diet. Fortify your lungs with breathing exercises and yoga. Get a fall tune up with a seasonal acupuncture treatment that focuses on nourishing the yin and boosting your immune system.

Summer Restorative Yoga & Acupuncture Workshop







With Linda Bender, RYT



With Sacred Essential Oils!!

Restore, Replenish & Nourish Your Qi !!



Late summer is the 5th season in Chinese Medicine. It is the shortest season (Mid-July thru September) but also one of the most important. It represents the transition of the Yang energy of Spring & Summer to the quieter Yin energy of Fall & Winter. It is a place where all seasons converge. This season belongs to the Earth element. Its paired organs are the Spleen & Stomach, which are the organs that receive the harvest of this season and enable us to nourish our bodies and spirits. The food we eat along with the breath we take in are how we replenish Qi, the vital energy needed to sustain life. This workshop which combines breath with acupuncture points that support the work of the stomach an spleen are especially helpful this time of year when we want to build up our immune system. Late summer is also the time to start incorporating more nourishing and easy to digest foods in to our diets. Eating more seeds and grains, proteins like fish and poultry, hot soups and steamed veggies will strengthen the body and build reserves needed for the colder months. It is time to phase out cold and raw foods which are harder to digest. Activities that incorporate the rhythm and sounds of nature are great ways to strengthen the earth element. Meditation or walking on a beach or in the forest can be especially restorative.



Linda and Kelly will work together in this unique workshop giving you the ultimate experience of healing and rejuvenation! You will begin with a few gentle grounding stretches, then guided into restorative poses using blankets & props. Once completely comfortable, acupuncture needles will be inserted into points corresponding to the stomach & spleen while guided meditations & the use of sacred essential oils will bring you into a blissful state of relaxation and balance …



*Please wear comfortable clothing giving easy access to the knees, lower legs and ankles.

*Yoga mats will be provided. Please bring 1or 2 pillows for comfort & added support.
