Robust health requires the proper functioning of internal information and energy transportation mechanisms. As yoga practitioners, we know that we feel better after our asana practice and that a regular practice can have beneficial effects on our health. But why?
In this workshop, we will learn about Western models of bioelectricity and electromagnetism, why they are important for cellular communication and how they could be relevant to our yoga practice. What if the assertions of ancient sages about prana or chi (fine energy) are not speculative?
After a short lecture we will indulge in a Yin yoga practice. This workshop is appropriate for both experienced yogis and those new to yoga and/or Yin yoga.
PARTICIPATION: 35 eur.

Yin yoga is a gentle and calm yet intense practice for all levels of flexibility and fitness. With basic anatomy principles in mind, it accommodates each person’s unique body type, respects our borders and develops patience with oneself. With primary focus on stretching thighs, hips and back, Yin yoga may help to re-establish a healthy joint movement and alleviate fascia-related pain. Long held stretches stimulate energy channels (meridians), relax the nervous system and, over time, serve to prepare both body and mind for meditation.
