Intro to Yin Yoga – The Workshop

March 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Yin Yoga is a style of yoga that stretches and targets the deep connective tissues throughout the body. The aim is to mindfully increase circulation in the joints and improve their range of motion as well as overall flexibility. It is a great practice for beginners, for students working with arthritis, as well as being a complementary style of yoga for athletes. Many Yin Yoga poses focus on stretching the hips, lower back and legs, areas where we tend to hold tension. Additionally, Yin Yoga has a meditative aspect, encourages us to go inward, and become calm and centered.
Learn about Yin Yoga’s Taoist roots, as well as contemporary teachers, that have shaped our Yin Yoga practice today. Find out about the concept of Yin & Yang, the life force called qi (pronounced chee) and the pathways qi travels through, the meridian system. Learn about the three tattvas (principles) of Yin Yoga and how to apply them to your practice. Experience many basic Yin Yoga poses, learn their names (which differ from Hatha Yoga) and discover modifications in case you are working with sensitive knees, lower back, or any injuries.
When: Sunday, March 29th
Time: 2:00 – 4:00 pm
