Yin Yoga during Toussaints
starts Monday 28 october 2019 at 18:45
This is a special yin yoga class taught in English by Diana Zagorskaya during the Toussaints holidays.
In the Traditional Chinese Medicine, Autumn is related to the metal element, our lungs, skin, and our overall immunity. Ayurveda (the medical system of yoga) also recognizes this season as a time to protect our immunity by nourishing and supporting our Lungs. According to Ayurveda "Vata" (air quality) increases in the fall. Vata has a light, dry and cold energy, so we can find ourselves more restless, dry or ungrounded this time of year.
Therefore, during this class, we will be working with the meridians that support the immune system. We will be as well stimulating the Wei (defensive) Qi circulation throughout the body, protecting it from the onslaught of outside disease factors.
Regular price: 20 Euros. Early-bird: 15 Euros. Credits cannot be used for "event" classes.
Up to 48 hours before class time, we will provide you with a credit to use during our Autumn term. Within 48 hours, your participation will be lost.
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.
Teacher: Diana Zagorskaya
Yoga has been a part of Diana’s life since the early 2000s. Born on the boarder with China, she has been highly influenced by eastern philosophy and medicine. Before yoga, she did gymnastics, mountain hiking and swimming, all of which helped her to quiet and focus her mind, but she was longing for a deeper truth of life and sought out growth experiences. In Cyprus, daily spontaneous breathing and physical practices amazed her by their deeply harmonizing effect and supported her in her spiritual journey. She later found them to be yogic asanas and breathing techniques when she started a formal, structured practice of yoga with Denise at Yoga La Source. She finished a 500-hour Teacher Training Course (Yin, Somatic yoga, Pranayama and Mindfulness) in 2017 and attends regular teaching intensives around the globe. Her mission is to accompany and serve people in the journey of coming upon their true natural and individual selves in an intuitive and mindful way. Go to Diana's page.
