Session 2 July 27, will go deeper into the practice, with focus on breath, pranayama and hip openers.
Session 3 August 3, will bring it all together with meditations to facilitate deepening the Yin experience, with a full-body practice.
Yin yoga is a practice of long-held, deeply relaxing “stretching” poses that open and energize the “meridians,” or energy pathways of the body, restoring youthful joint mobility as you quietly activate your prana, or life force.
Whereas the popular yang styles of yoga target the muscles of the body, yin yoga targets the more interior, supportive structures – the ligaments and tendons of the joints. Yin Yoga is the soothing tonic that is so missing in our busy lives, that can help us find balance and inner calm.
Yin is a restorative practice that literally helps you to recharge your batteries. With David’s Yin Yoga workshops you will learn poses like the Dragonfly, Seal and Swan, all of which are designed to stretch and revitalize the deeper connective tissue in every part of the body, stimulating your meridians which connect to your vital organs and help to restore balance and harmony in your body and mind. This practice will leave you feeling calm and energized at the same time. The poses, or asanas combined with deep, focused breathing encourage you to tune in and listen to your body and surrender to your feelings rather than trying to push them away. Poses are held between ten breaths and ten minutes, to liberate the body’s chronic holding patterns and relieve pain, helping you to recapture some of the ease and freedom of movement you had as a child. One of the most potent ways to cultivate the body’s subtle energy, Yin enables you to heal yourself, move negative emotions out, prevent injury and find a deep sense of peace in your body, mind and spirit.
