Bridge the gap of an active life to a meditative life. While practicing stillness in postures / asanas with longer holds, one’s mind begins to quiet down and allow greater awareness and understanding of oneself to emerge. Yin yoga can be described as a stabilizing, de-stressing, feminine and contemplative practice.

Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concepts of balancing the Yin and the Yang, the opposite and complementary principles in nature. With our busy lifestyles our bodies tighten up from stimulation and mental tension causing ailments and lack of mobility leading to discomfort and pain.  Yin yoga postures offers an opportunity for deeper connective tissues (Fascia) to release long held tensions allowing the Prana/ life force to flow more easily through previously blocked areas increasing overall energy and well-being.  Yin Yoga helps us to play our edges, unwind, breath more consciously and turn inward. With time in silence there is much to discover within oneself and more peace to be found. Yin is a wonderful compliment to any other form of yoga or any other activity in our life creating balance.

 

Benefits of Yin yoga are:

• Calming and balancing to the mind and nervous system
• Regulates energy, balances hormones, deeper relaxation
• Increases mobility in the body, especially the spine and major joints
• Lowers stress levels, reduces anxiety, improves sciatica, tmj tension and migraines
• Greater stamina, better ability to sit through meditation
• Better lubrication, protection and flexibility of joints and connective tissue
• Release of fascia throughout the body

 

As a teacher you will learn:

• to help students ease agitation and promote relaxation
• explain organic and emotional/energetic benefits of postures
• suggest specific postures therapeutically
• assess comfort of your students
• develop an understanding of the healing process
• offer verbal cues and hands on adjustments
• to re-align and restore the root of imbalance
• to guide students through 25 yin yoga postures

 

 

Training participants will have the opportunity to observe and assist Nora in a Yin Yoga workshop class on Sunday afternoon.  

Come dive in and explore your depths.
