Are going through an emotionally or physically challenging period? Consider focusing on the organs and meridians that house these emotions and ailments with Yin Yoga. Yin is a slow-paced style of yoga, incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time. This practice strengthens the ligaments and tendons and reduces chances of injury.
In this four session series, we will practice asanas that correspond with each organ that houses our emotions. We will discuss theory of meridians and how blocked Qi (Vital Energy) can manifest into physical and emotional problems.
Our practice will begin with a 30-minute yoga nidra, which brings you to a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. This will assist in stress relief and set the stage for our yin practice.
During each session, we will focus on one or more groups of organs that work together in harmony (Yin/Yang). This will include: Stomach/Spleen, Liver/Gallbladder, Kidney/Urinary Bladder, Heart/Small Intestines and Lung/Large Intestines.
Our practice will end with a 15-minute savasana. This is the time when we allow integration between our body and mind.
Pre-registration is required. Must have a minimum of 4 students to hold each workshop session.
