Yoga as practiced in the U.S. is almost exclusively Yang or muscular in nature. The Yin aspect of yoga – using postures that stretch connective tissue – is vital for a balanced approach to physical and mental health. I can vouch for this, folks as I’ve been practicing Yin yoga for 6 years now.
This workshop will be:
– Delightfully opening.
– Relaxing and rejuvenating.
– Supportive and settling to help students find their breath.
– Cultivating harmony in the body and mind.
The two major differences between a Yin and a Yang yoga practice are that Yin postures should be done with the muscles relaxed and should be held a long time. This is because connective tissue does not stretch like muscle and will not respond well to brief stresses. Yin Yoga and mindful, slow Yang will reveal underlying vitality. It will de-stress you, and invite your body-mind to feel calm and renewed. Ahhhh!
