Monthly Meeting: January 28, 2021 (online)
Nourishing Our Bodies, Nourishing Our Hearts:
Moving toward Balance
Register: By Wednesday, January 27, midnight
Renewed connections and renewed energy! What better way to start the New Year? Join FEW Kansai for our January 2021 meeting with Leigh Kennedy, who will share her insights into harmony and balance in the body through her talk on meridians (the pathways along which the body’s vital energy flows). Drawing on Eastern medicine, Leigh will lead us along the paths our energy takes as it flows through our bodies and discuss how the seasons affect us physically and emotionally. We will also learn some simple self-massage techniques to keep our energy flowing smoothly. You’ll leave with a better sense of how your energy flows and how to use this knowledge to feel at your best and share your best self with those around you in 2021.
Leigh has lived in Japan for over 25 years, and she has been teaching yoga in her local community since 2017. Her yoga classes combine movement and mindfulness with an emphasis on self-awareness and self-discovery. Leigh loves meeting people, listening to their stories, and learning about their passions. She is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and worked for several years at the International Counselling Centre in Kobe. Leigh spends her time “off the mat” taking walks with her dog, cooking, being a mom, and, lately, climbing mountains! Leigh also leads FEW Kansai’s twice-monthly Mindful Breaks and invites everyone to join a session and experience some simple ways to connect to your body and quiet your mind.
