YIN YOGA WORKSHOP – NOURISH YOUR SPIRIT, REJUVENATE YOUR BODY, AND ENLIVEN YOUR MIND!
Enjoy an introduction to Yin Yoga, with a lively Q&A on the philosophy and health benefits of Yin and then experience the magic for yourself! Join us for this workshop and get to know your inner emotional landscape in this deeply calming, profound mind-body workshop.
Yin yoga is a practice of long-held, deeply relaxing “stretching” poses that open and energize the “meridians,” or energy pathways of the body, restoring youthful joint mobility as you quietly activate and gather your chi, your prana—your life force.
Whereas the yoga most people are familiar with appropriates the muscles or yang tissues of the body, yin yoga targets the more interior, supportive structures-the “fasciae,” literally down to the bone marrow. Yin is every bit as vital as a heating or “yang vinyasa” yoga practice, where one flows from pose to pose, energetically pushing the envelope, concentrating on building muscular strength and stamina. In today’s world, Yin Yoga is the soothing balm, the elixir that is so badly needed to help us find balance in our stress-filled, over-scheduled lives.
Yin is a calming, restorative practice that literally helps you to recharge your batteries. With Jennifer’s Yin Yoga workshops you will learn poses like the dragonfly, seal and pigeon, all of which are designed to stretch and revitalize the deeper connective tissue in every part of the body, stimulating your meridians which connect to your vital organs and help to restore balance and harmony in your body and mind. This “needle-less” form of acupuncture will leave you feeling calm and energized at the same time. The asanas combined with deep, focused breathing encourage you to tune in and listen to your body and surrender to your feelings rather than trying to push them down or control them. Poses are held between ten breaths and ten minutes, to liberate the body’s chronic holding patterns and relieve pain, helping you to recapture some of the ease and freedom of movement you used to have as a child. One of the most potent ways to cultivate the body’s subtle energy, Yin enables you to heal yourself, move negative emotions out, prevent injury and find a deep sense of peace in your body, mind and spirit.
