Join Aaron on a journey into the inner world of Yin, a slow paced yoga practice with a series of long holds in floor-based poses. These beautifully restful Yin postures work deeply into the lower body areas that are especially rich in connective tissues.
Part One: Explore the passive practice of Yin which includes poses being held for 3-5 minutes with the aim of improving mobility. Keeping your connective tissue pliable and hydrated helps to restore youthfulness to your body and mind.
Part Two: Understand more about the 8 Limbs of Yoga and the philosophy behind Yin. Learn from the ancient wisdom of the practice and deepen your knowledge.
Part Three: Enjoy being guided through a mantra meditation to bring your awareness to sound. As you gently absorb your practice and encourage the subtle body to completely surrender and relax.
Part Two: Become aware and settle the fluctuations occuring in the mind through a set of restorative asanas.
Explore the wisdom of the philosophical teachings of yoga through asana (yoga poses), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation and discussion to discover how the wisdom is relevant to living in today’s world, and how to integrate the teachings into daily life and yoga practice.
Enjoy a restorative yoga practice to invite stilness and space for contemplation to help gain peace of mind by coming to the present moment. Understand how to fins support and comfort using props such as folded blankets and bolsters to relax the body and mind.
Absorb a sense of calm in a meditation with the ultimate aim of reaching Samadhi (a state of meditative consciousness).
