Yin Yoga practice is an experience of holding poses while non-striving and cultivating compassionate acceptance. While relaxing superficial Yang muscular tissues, we are able to access the deep Yin connective tissues—fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. This releases built-up tension from our lifestyles (standing, sitting, working, sports), helps our bodies feel less stiff and more fluid, counters the effects of aging, helps injuries heal, and improves range of motion of the joints.
This practice affects the Meridian system that runs through the fascia, as studied in Chinese Medicine. By affecting these meridians with intention and awareness, we can learn to sense the flow of Qi within us, promoting long term physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. This workshop’s focus is on the experience of the Yin Yoga practice and awareness of the Qi flowing within our bodies and nature. Autumn has its own sensation of Qi; there is a taking in of the crisp air and a letting go of leaves that have long held onto branches. We will become aware of the Lung and Large Intestine organ pairing and stimulate these meridians. The poses selected can help with back, neck, and shoulder tension, respiratory issues, immune function, and releasing long-held emotions.
