In the Spring, Qi rises in ourselves the way seeds burst out of the Earth, become new plants and grow toward the Sun. Spring is a time of more energy and birthing new ideas and projects. But first, we must release old ways and create space for growth. Calm the rising Spring energy while releasing the body’s tissues in this luxurious practice. Clean house…learn techniques for relaxing the mind, and releasing emotions and stagnation in the body.
Yin Yoga is an experience of holding poses while relaxing superficial Yang muscular tissues, therefore accessing 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.
Yin Yoga practice affects the Meridian system that runs through the fascia, as studied in Chinese Medicine. By affecting the meridians with intention and awareness, we can cultivate long term physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and compassionate acceptance of the self and others. This workshop includes meditation, pranayama (breathing), relaxation, and modifications for all levels of practice including beginners.
“This outward spring and garden are a reflection of the inward garden.” ~Rumi
