Yin: Restoring Hidden Flow
Saturday March 24, 2018, 2:00-4:00pm
A 2-hour Yin Yoga Workshop with Leah Vineberg
Turning our attention inward to meet and tend to tensions and resistance, Yin yoga brings all that is stagnant back into flow. Yin is a quiet, meditative practice that focuses on the meridians (energetic lines), organs and joints. Most poses are seated or lying down. The practice is more passive and receptive than a typical Hatha practice and we stay in each pose for 3-5 minutes. And while the muscles benefit enormously from the deep stretch, there is no muscular exertion in a Yin practice. It is a very engaged, deep inner-listening experience, and a wonderful complement to any Hatha practice. Participants develop the capacity to be generously and lovingly present toward themselves and toward whatever arises during and beyond the formal yoga session, and come away feeling embodied, nourished, peaceful and clear.
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
