Give yourself the gift of Yin Yoga. We are entering the busy Holiday season, and many feel constant pressure to do more and be better. It is time to go inward, practice total acceptance, and re-connect with the Earth. Yin Yoga is a practice of holding postures for a period of time while cultivating an attitude of compassion to awaken the more Yin parts of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves.
During this practice, we relax the superficial muscular layer (Yang tissue) in our bodies and are able to affect the deeper bones, joints, and connective tissues (Yin tissues). This allows us to release built up tension resulting from our lifestyles (standing, sitting, working, sports, etc.), helps our bodies become healthy and more flexible, and counters the affects of aging. By holding the postures for several minutes and then letting go, fresh blood, fluids and nutrients flood the areas worked, allowing the body to heal on a physical level.
Energetically, we promote the flow of energy (Qi) through channels (Meridians) in the body, as studied in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist tradition. Emotionally, as we go to our Edge in the postures, we face ourselves in the present moment, release long-held emotions, and learn to view ourselves and all beings with total acceptance. In this workshop, we will explore the Meridians of Chinese Medicine and their relationship to Yogic Chakra Theory. The workshop also includes Meditation, Pranayama, a long, luxurious Yin Yoga practice and deep relaxation, silent reflection, and information on how to start a home practice. It is suitable for All Levels of experience.
