Yin Yoga represents a counter to the more dominant yang world and general fitness. Characteristic of Yin Yoga is a slower, inwardly focused and meditative approach, whereby the practitioner moves gradually and deliberately, holding postures, allowing for whatever may arise and observing its appearance and then moving onward.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese holistic yogic system of healing that integrates a posture whether moving or stationary; breathing techniques; self-massage and mental focus to facilitate the flow of energy. By establishing a balanced flow of energy, you produce your own internal medicine. Qigong can be done by anyone, and it is intended to be practiced daily. You do not need equipment or a large practice space.
Your course instructors are Daoshi Dr. Michael Bittner, Ph.D. and Yogini Ms. Libby Cunningham, E-RYT 500.
As an experiential class, come ready to move with each class. It is recommended that you do not have a heavy meal in advance. Textbooks will be provided. All participants will receive a Yin endorsement for their Advanced YTT and credit towards the Way of the Tao.
