Ease your movement and emotional health by exploring a slow-paced yin yoga practice all from the floor. We will touch on the 3 principles of yin yoga and challenge the myth of yoga that everyone can do a pose if they just train long enough, hard enough…and with the right teacher. What is important is not what a pose looks like, but what it feels like. There are 8 possible directions (movements) for the spine and for many poses there are many variations. We will explore these directions.
“We don’t use the body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into the body!”
Allow time for two short meditations and physical practice of yin yoga poses for your Spine. This workshop is appropriate for beginners to yoga, as well as, the well-seasoned yoga student.
Now…let the Yin Begin!
Registration: Phone: 902.483.7088 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Pre-registration recommended. A home-practice package will be provided to all registered students at the workshop.
