Friday, November 13th – Sunday November 15th
Yin yoga is a deceptively simple practice. We take a form and then resolve to stay in it for minutes, anywhere from three to eight, allowing the deep fascia that surrounds and interweaves muscles to be therapeutically and gently stretched and made more pliable. From the outside, it can appear as if nothing's going on. At the end of a four minute dragon pose, you'll know this to be untrue. Yin yoga is about going beyond the visible. Yin yoga carries us into the subtle realm of fascia, connective tissue, and to the invisible neural and energetic network that interweaves all living systems. A deeply healing practice, yin yoga teaches us to be with what is. When we let go of resistance, sometimes by releasing physical, mental or emotional baggage, our lives become more fluid and easeful.
This weekend immersion is your gateway into the world of yin yoga. Whether you are a complete novice, or you've been taking yin classes for years and are interested in understanding what makes yin yoga so powerful, the workshop content is designed to be accessible and intriguing to all levels of yoga students and teachers. Yoga teachers interested in incorporating yin into their teaching schedules will take home valuable tools for class themes, sequencing of postures, anatomy and safety.
What To Bring:
- a journal or notebook and a pen
- a favorite poem or piece of prose
- a clock or time-keeping device (we love the Enso brand Zen clock) or timer app on your phone
