For hundreds of years, dragons have captured the imagination of people, young and old. They are potent metaphors for strength, power, determination, abundance & good fortune. Representing transformation, they can evoke fear through their ferocious imagery.
Exploring this imagery allows us to harness our own inner wisdom and power. Repeated numerous times, the Flying Dragon sequence stokes the inner fire, stimulating the heart & lung meridians. After this dynamic sequence, we retreat into the dragon’s lair, through a series of yin postures. Through meditative stillness, the more malevolent aspects of the Dragon (those parts of our personality that we tend to keep hidden in the darkness) are explored.
By bringing the light of compassionate awareness into the dark places, we come to realise our own capacity to conquer all demons and become the peaceful warriors we are destined to be.
