Introduction to the amazing anatomy of Yin Yoga, Nov 3

on Saturday, November 3 (14:00-18:00)

Would you like to understand your body better, while creating space to unwind and release tension? If so, then you are warmly invited to this introductory workshop on the anatomy of Yin Yoga!

Yin yoga is a gentle and calm yet intense practice for all levels of flexibility and fitness. With basic anatomy principles in mind, it accommodates each person’s unique body type, respects our borders and develops patience with oneself. With primary focus on stretching thighs, hips and back, Yin yoga may help to re-establish a healthy joint movement and alleviate fascia-related pain. Long held stretches stimulate energy channels (meridians), relax the nervous system and, over time, serve to prepare both body and mind for meditation.

First, Dace will explain the main principles and effect of a Yin Yoga practice on body, emotions and mind. We will touch upon such anatomy topics as connective tissue (fascia), target areas of poses, differences in the shape of bones and how that influences our Yoga practice, flow of subtle energy (meridians), “issues in the tissues” and releasing of the nervous tension. Then we will indulge in a generous Yin yoga practice.

This is a wonderful opportunity to discover the quiet, insightful and empowering Yin yoga practice.
