Spring and the Wood Element:

Spring is the time of the wood element and the organ systems of the Liver and Gallbladder. It is represented by the color green. Healthy wood element is strong and flexible, like willow or bamboo. It has a spirit of growth and rising. Trees root into the earth, rise to the sky, and are able to bend with the winds of change. They are both strong and flexible.

In Chinese medicine, the Liver nourishes our tendons and ligaments, so reinvigorate your liver and increase circulation with exercise, like tai chi and qigong, as well as outdoor activities and walks. In class, we will be adding Qigong exercises for the Liver and Gallbladder.
