Winter Yin (2 hrs)
Thursday 18 january 2018 at 15:30
This program is taught in English.
Winter is the ultimate yin. As nature retreats and prepares for a slow transition into spring, so are we invited to slow down, take a step back and offer some nourishing practices to our body and mind. In this 2-hour workshop, we will focus on the meditative aspect of yin yoga, viewing the practice as an invitation for introspection and finding stillness while moving through poses that target the main areas where we tend to hold tension: shoulders, hips and lower back.
No previous yin yoga or meditation practice is necessary. Everybody is welcome.
This is not treated as an individual class within a term registration where one can cancel within an hour and receive a credit. This is considered an "event". We refund all cancellations made at least 48 hours in advance less 5 Euros. Within 48 hours, we will only refund if the event is full and we are able to take someone in from a waiting list.
Style: Yin Yoga
Yin yoga is a modern synthesis of Tao Yin and hatha yoga developed by Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. In Yin yoga, floor postures are held for a long duration (3-5 minutes). On a physical level, it helps to increase the suppleness in the joints within our natural range of motion. While staying in the positions, we apply gentle pressure on the joints and relax the muscles around them. This way we affect the deep connective tissues and initiate the natural repair mechanism of the body. Energetically, Yin Yoga helps opening the body’s meridian system. It increases our vitality and harmonizes the energetic activity of the body. Go to the Yin Yoga page.
