Yin Class For Liver And Galbladder

Written by Sophie Nusselder

Spring is in the air in Europe. The season of such aliveness, the season of the wind in traditional Chinese medicine.  The season of the liver and the gallbladder. This blog includes a yin practice targeting these meridians. May the wind blow through your hair, may you blossom, grow and be free.

Sophie Nusselder

My name is Sophie Nusselder. I started practicing and teaching yoga in 2008 and knew I started travelling a path that would change my life. Ever since my childhood I remember having a natural desire for physical movement. Born and raised on the Dutch countryside I loved to bike and hike in nature. The awareness of the breath in yoga made me connect with deeper layers. A fortification of magic in life! To me yoga means aligning. Yoga and meditation are tools to remove that what blocks me and allow space – the space of pure presence. By constantly returning to this space I discover what truth is and what is not. It’s direct communication, which results in pure clarity, free feelings, liberation and creativity. I experience yoga as a feeding of my deepest yearning, it creates challenges to develop myself and it works as a support in my inner pursuits.
